City Center's 2018 Annual Gala Presentation is the classical musical "A Chorus Line," a passionate tribute to dance and musical theater—two art forms that they have been bringing to New York audiences for 75 years. More…
In 1975, the stories of seventeen Broadway dancers sprang to life when "A Chorus Line" opened Off-Broadway. Born of workshop sessions with actual Broadway dancers (eight of whom appeared in the original cast), the musical turned the spotlight on the anonymous, sparkling workhorses of the ensemble. The scrutiny of the audition room gives way to the intimacy of a confessional as—one by one—the usually overlooked cogs in the machine step forward to divulge why their lives are singular and sensational. This incisive portrait of the life of the Broadway dancer received twelve Tony Award nominations, winning nine—in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This Annual Gala Presentation is led by Bob Avian (original co-choreographer) and Baayork Lee (Connie, original cast).
See it if Top notch production. Great actors/singers/dancers. Themes that are as relevant today as they were over 40 years ago.

See it if If you want to see a big time musical. Great singing and dancing.
Don't see it if A musical that is dated, not quite as good as at the Shubert in the 70's. You want up to date costumes and numbers in a musical.
See it if Maybe 7th version for us. Still spectacular esp. the dancing and the story despite 2 hours plus. How often: 100% agreement with Partner? .
Don't see it if alas. nothing negative Be prepared for more than 2 hours & no Intermission
See it if extraordinary choreography, well danced; audience roared at iconic moments esp "one step" dance ensemble b4 mirrors at begin/end
Don't see it if 1975 dancers’ stories of abuse/alienation not as affecting today; still best evocation of heartbreak/thrill of Bdway dance audition
See it if you've ever felt like you haven't gone anywhere in your life or career--and you need validation that you're not alone. Plus, the dancing!
Don't see it if you need a traditional narrative structure. This show introduces many characters, but there's a simple, uncomplicated storyline.
See it if Classic 70s musical give the Encores loving treatment. Great dancing and singing. Tony Yazbeck wins as Zach and Ryan Steele as his assistant

Don't see it if the original is a bit dated & some of the voices are weak ( & that affects their stories)
See it if A joyous, if rueful, story of Broadway gypsy’s hopes & dreams, as they climb or descend or hang onto their aspirations of fulfillment.
Don't see it if It’s the same show you saw 40 years ago, so nostalgic, some dialogue no longer shocks, some singing shrill but the audience was thrilled.
See it if you want to see what was in 1975 a revolutionary musical. I saw it then and this production is outstanding.
Don't see it if you like Disney musicals. This show has heart and a cast that truly shines.Not the scenery or special effects.
See it if You know and like this musical or if you have never seen it. A bit of history. Dancing good. Tony Yazbeck terrific. Good staging.
Don't see it if You bored with monologues. Each dancer tells life story. Some of the women a bit screechy in song.
Also An important turning point in Broadway. Read the playbill.
See it if you’ve never gotten to see A Chorus Line on stage before; want to see some spectacular dancing; don’t want to miss that final “One” reprise.
Don't see it if you need more story-substance to go along with your dancing; seeking catchy show-tunes; dislike some sexual frankness and coarse language.
See it if you've never seen A Chorus Line, you have seen A Chorus Line.The cast is so talented. There is magic in the final number (and mirrors, too).
Don't see it if you don't like musicals. That's the only reason I can think of. And, if you don't like musicals, you're missing some great shows.
See it if A high energy revival of a classic musical. Great singing and dancing.The ensemble cast is excellent. It is definitely worth revisiting.

Don't see it if You don't like iconic musicals.
See it if You can't get enough of this show. It's a lot to put together for such a short run. Great dancing.

See it if You love the show; they don’make them like this anymore.
Don't see it if You’re not a musical person.
Also Given the short rehearsal period, this production is first rate.
See it if you love the show & can get tickets for this joyous revival! The audience was ecstatic as were the performers!
Don't see it if You prefer not to see revivals.
See it if you want to see a Broadway classic. The cast was superb and the dancing was some of the best that I've ever seen. A theatergoers dream.
Don't see it if you are looking for your typical modern musical. Some of the music was a little odd and it is very long without an intermission.
See it if You love the show. It doesn’t disappoint. It also is moving and wonderful if you don’t know it, though it drags in spots, and feels dated.
Don't see it if You love Encores! What they do so well is take lesser known shows, or well known shows, and make them refreshing and new. That didn’t happen
