A Chorus Line Returns to the Playhouse Stage in a Triumphant Production

After more than 40 years of performances worldwide, including the Playhouse, A Chorus Line will return to the EP stage February 17th– March 5th.

A Chorus Line was first produced by the Playhouse in 1990, and features a book by Nicholas Dante and James Kirkwood with music and lyrics by Marvin Hamlisch and Edward Kleban. The show is a stunning musical tribute to all dancers who have trod the boards. It is a powerful metaphor for all human inspiration and a brilliant fusion of dance, song and compelling drama.

Thrust into the middle of an audition, for an upcoming production, the dancers frantically compete for the top spots in the “chorus line.” However, as the numbers dwindle, the director delves into their pasts, unearthing stories from unhappy childhoods, to feeling unloved, to discovering their true selves. 

The talented ensemble is under the direction/staging of Richard Davis, with the original choreography recreated by Heidi Sheehan. Matt Fuchs shines as Zach the director, while Playhouse favorite Kelley McDonald brings the talented triple-threat of Cassie to life. The other members of the cast include Brett Fallon (Mike), Kristin Henry (Sheila), Curtis Jones (Richie), Katie Lowe (Val), Jenna Lindberg (Diana), Jack Mannion (Mark), Jason Wisniewski (Greg), James Dixon (Larry), Austin Kulyk (Paul), Mathew Anderson (Al), Marshall Hunsaker (Don), Jared Gannoe (Bobby), Tori Kosezegi (Judy), Alanna Grafius (Bebe), Reagan Kennedy (Maggie), Jenna Halasz (Connie) and making her Mainstage debut, Rachel Du Chateau (Christine). 

Favorite and familiar songs punctuate the stunning production including “One,” “What I Did for Love,” “At the Ballet,” “Dance: Ten; Looks: Three,” and “The Music and the Mirror.”

Additional production credits go to Patrick Rose for music direction, Christine Carmichael for set and lighting design and Ryan Ingram for wardrobe and costume design.

A Chorus Line at the Erie Playhouse – a moving, heartbreaking, and impassioned show you’ll want to see again and again.
