One of the longest running shows of all times, this musical was formed from several taped workshop sessions with Broadway dancers.
The dancers auditioning for the chorus line of a new Broadway show are asked to tell the director about themselves in order to land a part.
Rumor has it the name A Chorus Line was chosen so it would appear first in the New York Times alphabetical list of theatre offerings.
