Gainesville visitors and residents will still have time to see The Gainesville Community Playhouse Production of A Chorus Line. If you already saw this wonderful musical, you might want to see it again.
A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in July 25th 1975 at the Shubert Theatre and closed after 6,137 performances. It still remains the sixth longest Broadway show ever.
Marvin Hamlish wrote the music for this, while the lyrics were written by Edward Kleban.
As you might remember, Mr Hamlish passed away in 2012. He was a composer of many movie soundtracks as well as other Broadway musicals.
This Marvin Hamlish musical is a simple story about the remaining seventeen dancers, after the first round of cuts, auditioning on stage for a musical. Only eight will be chosen from this final group. Four girls, and four boys.
Each of the seventeen hopefuls sing and dance on stage while you find out a little about their lives.
The famous and popular song "One" is performed at the show's finale. Others songs that might sound familiar to you are,
"At The Ballet", "I Can Do That" , "I Hope I Get It", "Dance: Ten, Looks: Three" and the very popular
"What I Did For Love".
