A Chorus Line

The musical by Marvin Hamlish and Michael Bennet!


A new show is being prepared on Broadway. From a large number of applicants, ten dancers are to be selected for the ballet group. The viewer gets an insight into the hard, sober working day of an audition in the theater and experiences the dancers in their struggle for engagement.

Choreographer Zach wants to learn from the dancers why they want to be in the spotlight and so everyone reveals their psychogram in front of the group. Shortly before the decision is made about who will come to the show after the audition, a dancer injures himself so badly that he has to be taken to the hospital. Zach then asked the participants in the audition what they would do if they could no longer dance and received an answer: "We dance because we love dance, and what you do for love you will not regret."
Change of scene, grand finale, a perfect show that the audience loves. The dancers who have just introduced themselves personally and who were lucky enough to be selected dance - in the "Chorus Line".

Directed by Baayork Lee (based on original director and choreography by Michael Bennett)
Set design: Arthur Siccardi (based on the original by Robin Wagner)
