The Tony Award-winning musical "A Chorus Line" is set to perform at West Virginia University’s Creative Arts Center tonight at 7:30 p.m.
One of the most passionate and heartfelt musicals ever to grace the stage, "A Chorus Line" tells the story of 17 Broadway dancers who risk everything for a chance at stardom.
"It’s an inspiring performance for anyone who has ever had a dream and fought hard for it," said David Ryan, Arts & Entertainment public relations specialist. "These characters really are looking at the chance of a lifetime, and they’re going to sing and dance their hearts out for it."
The show has captured the hearts of critics and theater fans alike since its inception in 1975, and it has a lavish trophy case to show for its success.
Thanks to this motivating and heartening storyline, the musical has earned nine Tony Awards, including the prestigious distinction of "Best Musical."
In addition, it captured the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1976, a feat rarely won by musicals.
For these accolades "A Chorus Line" remains the sixth longest-running Broadway show in the venue’s history.
"‘A Chorus Line’ is an all-time classic," Ryan said. "You can’t help but get taken away into the journey of these aspiring performers putting it all on the line for their passion."
With Christmas just around the corner, "A Chorus Line" is the perfect show to help you reflect on your life and help you garner an appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices made by many on a day-to-day basis.
The nationally touring production of "A Chorus Line" promises to provide exceptional storytelling, top-quality acting and world-class dance and song that will leave the audience breathless.
The show is nearing a sell-out, and Ryan urges prospective attendees to act fast if they wish to catch a slice of Broadway in Morgantown.
"The response has been fantastic, and only a limited number of tickets remain, so if you’re thinking about it, get them now," Ryan said. "This is one singular sensation you don’t want to miss."
