Seventeen dancers face a bare stage in an empty theater, where casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. This audition offers the chance of a lifetime. Every drop of sweat, every hour of training, and every moment of dancing comes together in A Chorus Line, the musical for anyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. BPA’s production is directed by Steven Fogell and Joanna Hardie, with choreography by Joanna Hardie, and musical direction by Chris Kolbegger - the artistic team behind BPA’s smash hits The Rocky Horror Show and Chicago .
In true Chorus Line fashion, the cast features an ensemble of unique experience and talent, including BPA veterans: Joanna Hardie (Chorographer The Rocky Horror Show, Chicago & The Full Monty), Rebekah Witt (The Producers & Chicago), DeSean Halley (The Rocky Horror Show, Chicago, The Full Monty & Tommy), Diane Peterson (The Rocky Horror Show, The Women, Chicago), Ryan O’Donnell (The Outsiders, The Full Monty, Tommy, Spelling Bee), Evelina Svennson (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Cats, Hansel & Gretel), Paul Bryan (The Rocky Horror Show, Man of La Mancha, Philadelphia Story), and Nora Lang (Cats, Hansel & Gretel). Newcomers to the BPA stage include Xavier Euzarraga, Travis Roderick, Joey Chapman, Evan Thomas, Antoine de la Cruz, Jeffrey Gans, Elizabeth Grant, Jennifer Ewing, Whitney Mayer, Elizabeth Racely, Corrine Roberts, Jordan Levine, Elizabeth Johns, and Ariel Gazerian.
A Chorus Line is “One Singular Sensation” that garnered virtually every award imaginable, including the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize. This groundbreaking musical, set during an audition for an upcoming Broadway show, shines a light on the hopes, fears and dreams of performers vying for a chance to do what they all know they were born to do. A Chorus Line is an enthralling and emotional metaphor for what drives each of us to achieve our dreams.
