A Chorus Line Comes to The Fabulous Fox Theatre

The 30th Anniversary Production of A CHORUS LINE comes to The Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta for a special engagement March 3 – 8, 2009, presented by Fidelity Investments Broadway Across America - Atlanta. Winner of nine Tony® Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, A CHORUS LINE showcases a group of working dancers auditioning for a Broadway musical while revealing their individual stories, personal joys and disappointments. A CHORUS LINE is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

This new production of A CHORUS LINE reclaimed its place in the heart of Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 W 45th St) where it opened to rave reviews on October 5, 2006. Ben Brantley of The New York Times hails the show “Heaven on Broadway!” Elysa Gardner of USA Today calls it “Exhilarating and endearing, it still has a freshness and fervency too seldom seen in contemporary musicals,” while The New York Daily News exclaims “There’s nothing better! The show thrills from the opening number to the glittering finale,” and Jeffrey Lyons of WNBC TV hails it "An American Masterpiece. A show for the ages." A CHORUS LINE is directed by its original Tony® Award-winning co-choreographer Bob Avian and is produced by John F. Breglio.

A CHORUS LINE, conceived and originally choreographed and directed by Michael Bennett, features a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban. Baayork Lee re-stages the original choreography.
