Winner of the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1976 Tony Award for Best Musical, this production celebrates the play's 40th anniversary. Broadway director Zach oversees auditions for chorus roles in a Broadway musical. To narrow down the finalists, and get to know the dancers, Zach asks that each shares something about their past. The performers, including Cassie, with whom Zach shares a past, open up about their lives and passions, but never lose track of their aim: to book the job.

Theater In The Now

"The Secret Theatre's production of 'A Chorus Line' reminds us why we love this musical…The Secret Theatre presented a solid production of 'A Chorus Line' filled with many unavoidable restrictions. I can only imagine what could have been explored with freedom." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"Rowan is aware that as long as it stays true to the spirit of Michael Bennett’s seminal production, almost any revival of the show will be at the least entertaining. But he brings something that’s not always there: urgency. The actors in the ensemble read much younger than in other productions, but their youth works because it reminds us of how much value our society puts on younger people, and how much 'older' people are made to feel much earlier nowadays."
