A CHORUS LINE takes its audience through the final grueling audition for a new Broadway musical. After a rigorous dance sequence that opens the show, cuts are made and finalists are selected. The driven, compulsive director Zach decides to elicit a personal history from each dancer: how they got into show business, why they became dancers, what their hopes, fantasies and aspirations are. As he calls upon them individually, their stories emerge, blending into a seamless series of songs, storytelling, and dance routines; some humorous, some poignant, some intimate.

A CHORUS LINE departs from the usual glossy backstage musical by presenting a true picture of life in the theatre: glamorous at times, but also tough, heartbreaking and sometimes even tragic. After these brave dancers explain why they go through life filled with rejection and injury, Zach makes his selection.
