Synopsis

Amazon.com
Michael Bennett's 1975 tale of Broadway's gypsies--the chorus dancers--resonated with audiences as few shows ever have, examining with both hilarity and heartbreak the grueling life of ordinary performers always auditioning for an opportunity to be members of a faceless chorus line. And along the way, it picked up the Pulitzer, the New York Drama Critics Award, and nine Tonys, and became the longest-running show in Broadway history. The original cast (eight of whom contributed their real-life memories to the show) included no major stars, but are unmatched on this cast recording of Marvin Hamlisch and Edward Kleban's score, including Priscilla Lopez's poignant "Nothing," Donna McKechnie's yearning dance number "The Music and the Mirror," one of Broadway's most famous torch ballads in "What I Did for Love," and the ultimate high-kicking chorus number, "One." Fans of the show will welcome the 1998 remastered CD, which adds two and a half minutes to "Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love." While still incomplete, the montage now includes "Four-foot ten," "Little brat," and "The worst thing in school...." --David Horiuchi

Excellent CD. Every song is a showstopper. Recently saw a production of Chorus Line in LA and finally understood the power of those songs and each character live and on stage. A Masterpeice!

Great show -- rotten singing
John Cragg | Delta(greater Vancouver), B.C Canada | 01/10/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Chorus line is a great show to watch, but the music is not very good and most of the female singing on this disc is abominable -- harsh, unattractive and unmodulated. As Broadway musicals go, this is one whose cast cd should be avoided."
