Michael Bennett’s famous 1975 Broadway musical, A Chorus Line is coming to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m..

A Chorus Line is a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning show, and is well known for being one of the longest running successful American musical productions.

Revolving around 17 dancers auditioning for a spot in a chorus line, Bennett’s production allows the audience to get a glimpse of stage life behind the curtains, and to see what dancers and entertainers go through in order to get a job.

Director of this year’s production, Baayork Lee, who created the role of Connie in the original Chorus Line, and who was Bennett’s assistant choreographer, said this year’s cast includes, “26 young and talented dancers, from all over the States, and they are so excited to perform.”

Lee has been involved with A Chorus Line for 37 years and has seen the musical tour around the world.

“It continues to be exciting working with new people, and seeing how they absorb the style of the musical,” she said.

The cast that performs in A Chorus Line knows first-hand what it is like to try and land a job on Broadway, which makes their characters all the more convincing.

“The Abbotsford audience will leave with a good lesson, and will understand why we love what we do, we love singing, we love dancing, we love being on stage,” said Lee.

And this is illustrated in the song at the end of the show “What I Did For Love.”

A Chorus Line is suitable for all ages.
