Coronado Playhouse’s 70th Anniversary Season The Community’s Theatre presents Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award Winning Broadway Classic A CHORUS LINE NOVEMBER 4-DECEMBER 11, 2016 to also benefit The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank
CORONADO, CA – Coronado Playhouse, the Community’s Theatre, presents the nine-time Tony Award®-winning singular sensation A Chorus Line from November 4 to December 11, 2016. Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, with a book by James Kirkwood, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kleban, A Chorus Line celebrates some of the hardest working people in American Musical Theatre, gifted dancers, singers and actors, who passionately pursue their desire to perform. Audiences glimpse into the private lives, taking an emotional behind-the-scenes look, of chorus dancers auditioning for a Broadway show highlighting the sacrifices and devotion, the triumphant successes and the tragedy of unrealized dreams required to make it.
Featuring heart-wrenching intimate stories, dynamic choreography and unforgettable songs such as “I Hope I Get It!”, “At the Ballet”, “Nothing” and “One,” A Chorus Line was the recipient of numerous prestigious awards for its original Broadway production, including the 1976 Tony® Award for Best Musical, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical among many others. The music and message, still as fresh and true as ever, captures the excitement and drama that all performers face. A Chorus Line is for mature audiences only and includes adult language and situations.
Coronado Playhouse has assembled the award-winning creative team of Thomas Fitzpatrick (director), Kirk Valles (music director) and Jennie Gray Connard & Shirley Johnston (co-choreographers), who have re-staged the original Broadway choreography, alongside a cast of Playhouse favorites and new talent.
Tickets range from $20 to $27 and are available through Coronado Playhouse’s Box Office at (619) 435-4856 or online at www.CoronadoPlayhouse.com.
