A Chorus Line


May 25th, 2008
Ahmanson Theatre, Los Angles
Musical, we went with Theresa


This was my first time seeing A Chorus Line live. I've seen the movie as well, and I know the songs. And now I've seen it on stage.

The touring cast is full of great dancers and actors.

Stand-outs for me were Emily Fletcher as Sheila, Hollie Howard as Maggie ("At the Ballet") and the hilariously appealing Natalie Hall as Val ("Dance Ten, Looks Three" aka T*ts and *ss). Hollie Howard's voice was especially beautiful and likely the strongest in the production. We hope to see her in something again soon. And we all agreed Kevin Santos as Paul was very empathetic and appealing.

The choreography was energetic and crisp, and we did thoroughly enjoy this production. It's very funny and real, and I can't imagine a more accurate window into the world of Broadway performers.
