March 12 to April 12- A Chorus Line (One Singular Sensation!)

The Wick Theatre is proud to present A Chorus Line, the iconic celebration of the Broadway’s unsung heroes. The groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning show made its debut 45 years ago (1975) setting a new standard on Broadway. Filled with universal stories, hit songs and dazzling dancing, it remains as relevant, poignant and explosively entertaining as ever. Mitzi Hamilton, who was the inspiration for the character of Val in Michael Bennett’s original production, takes the helm as both director and choreographer of The Wick Theatre’s production.

A Chorus Line takes the audience through the final grueling audition run by the director, Zach, for a new Broadway musical. At the beginning of the show, Zach, a driven, compulsive worker, has assembled a group of semi-finalists and is putting them through a vigorous series of dance combinations, including ballet and jazz. Soon he thins this group down to the final eight boys and eight girls. They and the audience know that eventually this number will be cut in half and Zach will choose only four boys and four girls to be in his new musical. Instead of having them read a short audition scene, Zach wants to elicit a personal history from each one: how they got into “show business,” why they became dancers, what their hopes, fantasies and aspirations are. As he calls upon them individually, they react in every possible way, from bravado to reticence. From childhood on, their memories emerge, blending into a seamless series of musical numbers and monologues.

Conceived & Originally Directed & Choreographed by Michael Bennett, with a Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante; Music by Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by Edward Kleban, and Co-choreographed by Bob Avian. The original Broadway production was produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival; Joseph Papp, Producer, in association with Plum Productions, Inc.  The Gala Opening Night performance is Saturday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. The regular performance schedule is Wednesday through Sunday. Matinees are on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Evening performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The Wick Theatre is located at 7901 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton, Florida.
