Overview

A Chorus Line [2006 Broadway Revival Cast]

The Tony Award-winning 1970s musical A Chorus Line steps into the future on this 2006 new-cast recording. All the groundbreaking spirit of the original (which closed in 1990, after more than 6,000 performances) comes through anew in this revival, thanks to a talented young troupe without a weak link -- a good thing, as this may be the ultimate ensemble show. Lyricist Edward Kleban and composer Marvin Hamlisch broke the Broadway mold by building a musical around the aspirations of a group of dancers auditioning not for a starring role but merely a spot in the chorus. Especially in the long, central "Montage" (heard here in a more complete version than on the original cast album), what emerges is a candid and often comical set of character sketches -- presented, of course, with toe-tapping and finger-snapping pizzazz. By the time "One," the show's top tune, comes around, it's not Jonathan Tunick's enhanced orchestrations or the added material (longer cuts of "I Hope I Get It" and "The Music and the Mirror") that captivate, but simply the undimmed power of one of Broadway's most original successes.

I saw this show the summer of 2007 in NYC and it was the experience of a lifetime! The show is both touching and funny. This soundtrack is absolutely a must have for any musical fanatic. Much of the show is fun, lighthearted, and quirky, featuring such songs as "Dance: Ten, Looks: Three" and "Nothing," but there are some amazing dance numbers, like "Music and the Mirror," and beautiful ballads, like the climactic number "What I Did for Love." I promise that you will not soon regret purchasing this disk.

This revival CD of A Chorus Line is everything like the original just more. The only difference is that there is more dialogue put into almost all of the songs which is great for revisiting the cd after seeing the musical. The cd also comes with all of the lyrics from the songs on the album. The only problem is that Sing is pretty bad compared to the original. This is a must buy for any fan of the original cast recording of A Chorus Line.

If you liked the Original Cast recording of A Chorus Line, you will be sorely disappointed by this version. The Original Cast is moving, tender, fun and a joy to listen to. This version is just plain awful.

"A Chorus Line" 2006 Revival is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time. The production team did a wonderful job keeping the high nervous energy of the audition process alive. James T. Lane as "Richie" takes one's breath away with his clean lines and energetic moves. Go see the Show on Broadway.

The revelations of talented dancers in their quest for seeking an opportunity to appear on the broadway stage. Individual stories describe their frustrations along the way. Music and choreography outstanding.
