"A Chorus Line" Opens Tomorrow At Nearby Seattle Musical Theatre

"A Chorus Line" opens tomorrow evening at Seattle Musical Theatre (7400 Sand Point Way) in Magnuson Park and runs through March 4th.

Jennifer, SMT Executive Director, sent us the following information: 
A Chorus Line follows a group of desperate to work actor/dancers through their audition experience for a spot on the synchronized dance chorus of an upcoming Broadway production. Ironically, Director Zach uses the audition to mine each of their very unique personal events that shaped their lives as dancers.

It is written from the experiences of real dancers on Broadway in 1974 and is filled with several pop cultural references of the time. The experiences of characters, Cassie, Paul, and Mark and the others of “the line” leave the audience with a deeper understanding of overcoming pain and fear in our search to experience what we love.

It was one of the longest running show on Broadway, with music composed by Marvin Hamlisch.

The Seattle Musical Theatre cast is filled with Seattle’s own “triple threats”-those rare actors with the acting, dancing and vocal chops needed to carry this musical.
Performances are Friday and Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2pm and one Thursday night show, March 1st.

Tickets are $35-$40 with special rates for seniors, students and group sales. Tickets can be purchased here or by calling the
box office at 206-363-2809.
