Sydney Festival presents the Darlinghurst Theatre Company production of
in association with Riverside Theatres

Dive into a world of sweat, sacrifice and sensational choreography when music theatre’s singular sensation comes to Sydney Festival. Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line ripped down the curtain to reveal the struggles of Broadway performers to be seen, heard, recognised and respected. Featuring the music of Marvin Hamlisch (including Dance Ten; Looks ThreeWhat I Did for Love and One) and based on interviews with real dancers, A Chorus Line shows what it means to put everything on the line. During a gruelling musical theatre audition, desperation will open the door to exploitation, and racism and sexism are rife.

A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975. Ten Tony® Awards, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and countless international plaudits later, it remains one of the most successful musicals of all time. This dynamic production, twice postponed by COVID-19, features bold new choreography by director Amy Campbell (In the Heights (Helpmann Nominated for Best Choreography), HAIR, Funny Girl) and musical direction by Andrew Worboys.

10 Tony® Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score
9 Drama Desk Awards
A Pulitzer Prize for Drama
A New York Drama Critics Award
