From Mayo Performing Arts Center:

From the pen of legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning singular sensation, A CHORUS LINE, is dancing into The Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown on March 3 at 3 pm and 8 pm and March 4 at 3 pm. Tickets are $49-$89.

Directed and Choreographed by the legendary Baayork Lee.

In the classic story, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete, and for 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime and what they’ve been working their whole lives for. A CHORUS LINE brilliantly evokes both the glamour and the dark underbelly of showbiz, and resonates with everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. The iconic score features such classics as “What I Did for Love,” “One,” “I Hope I Get It” and more. With its celebration and true-to-life depiction of performers and their struggle to achieve greatness on the Broadway stage, A CHORUS LINE has earned unanimous praise as one of the true masterpieces of live theater.

Big League Productions’ A CHORUS LINE features Michael Bennett’s original work restaged by the legendary Baayork Lee. A director, actress, author and choreographer, Lee played Connie Wong in the original 1975 production of A CHORUS LINE, and has gone on to direct and choreograph more than 35 international productions of the show, including the most recent Hollywood Bowl version, which she staged with the National Tour’s associate director, Peter Pileski. She was also the recipient of the 2017 Isabelle Stevenson Tony Award for her contributions to theater education programs around the world.
