About the show

This musical classic is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the Broadway musical: the chorus dancers–those valiant, underpaid, highly trained performers who live in the background of the limelight. More…

Seventeen dancers compete for a spot in the chorus line of a Broadway show, and the drama unfolds as they perform dazzling dance numbers and reveal personal stories through heartfelt songs.

Entertaining, Great singing, Delightful, Riveting, Great acting

See it if you want to enjoy a top-notch, off-off Broadway production of this historic musical: best I’ve seen with a wonderful cast true to original.

Don't see it if you do not like good singing and dancing by talented, young actors in an intimate setting. Some moments of the orchestra loud over voices.

Resonant, Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Delightful

See it if you want to see a classic show in an intimate space, support smaller theaters and up-and-coming performers

Entertaining, Great acting, Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if You want to watch a classic. The cast was great, it was a lot of fun.

Don't see it if You're not into musicals, or you are expecting a Broadway experience. This is a pretty low key production but still pretty fantastic IMO.

86
Engaging, Intimate, Absorbing, Funny, A gem

See it if The bones & gristle of a classic are for U. The small theater puts U IN the rehearsal studio-lets U feel the pathos in the dancers' stories

Don't see it if U need BIG BWAY. That glitzy finale doesn't play quite the same, but the theater's intimacy serves the play well. Some voices are muffled.

Also AND it's performed with a live band.

See it if you know and love the show and want to experience it in a smaller space with a more intimate feel.

Don't see it if you don't love dance musicals and would rather see a play.

Faithful revival, Delightful, Generally good performances, Touching

See it if you are a fan of the original--this does a good job of capturing the spirit. Performances are mostly good especially group numbers

Don't see it if you just aren't a fan of the work. If you expect Broadway caliber. If you don't go to Brooklyn. It's a schlep.

85
Dated, Riveting, Entertaining, Great dancing

See it if You want great dancing, funny and occasionally tearjerking songs, and an interesting ensemble cast

Don't see it if You want flashy sets, you're bothered by outdated stereotypes of black and Asian characters, you care about pacing (Chorus Line is slowwwww)
