The West End proudly presents a revival of a much beloved show in 2013 as “A Chorus Line”, originally a hit on Broadway, finds itself on the stage of the London Palladium. It will be an unbeatable opportunity to enjoy a story that was first experienced in the 1970s, when it won over many fans on both sides of the Atlantic and managed to pick up numerous awards as well. So when “A Chorus Line” opens its doors in London, you are going to want to be quick to pick up theatre tickets so that you can be the first in line.
And just as “A Chorus Line” has its origins on Broadway, its story also reflects this as it looks at a group of Broadway dancers as they decide they want to become a part of a chorus line, subsequently auditioning for the part. But what are their reasons for entering this chosen profession? During the course of the show we learn of their motivations and lives, which lead them into the field. But that’s not all and those that love such west end shows can also look forward to songs such as “What I Did For Love”, “Hello Thirteen” and “The Music and the Mirror”, among many others.
Bob Avian is set to direct the show and he does-so on the back of a long career as a choreographer and director. He even worked on the original Broadway production back in the 1970s and this means he is more that qualified to bring this show to the stage in London. In addition to “A Chorus Line” he has also choreographed London shows like “Sunset Boulevard”, “The Witches of Eastwick” and “Martin Guerre”, the latter of which earned him the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Choreography in 1997.
The London Palladium will offer a great place to witness this classic musical, having been the home of “The Wizard Of Oz” and “Scrooge the Musical” prior to its arrival in 2013. For years it has welcomed many stand-out shows and stood out as a prominent London theatre.
“A Chorus Line” is at the London Palladium with a run beginning on Tuesday 19th February 2013 (previews from Saturday 2nd February 2013).
