Overview

A Chorus Line [Original Broadway Cast Recording]

Michael Bennett's 1975 valentine to "gypsies," the dancers who are often treated as so much mobile scenery in Broadway musicals, is sometimes considered to have broken new ground with its frank portraits of talented but frustrated performers. The score by Marvin Hamlisch and Edward Kleban is a favorite of "theater people" everywhere, but was designed to showcase the abilities of dancers rather than singers. Consequently, only the ballad "What I Did for Love" has had a life outside of the show's context. Columbia/Legacy's 1998 CD reissue of the original Broadway cast recording of A Chorus Line contained the previously unreleased "Montage, Pt. 1: Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love," plus extensive liner notes featuring memorabilia, cast listings, and previously unpublished photos.

And so I guess you can't be too critical about it. Perhaps the Cd from the movie soundtrack is a little more tuneful in some spots. "Dance ten, looks three" and "Nothing" are my favorites. Of course you'd have to see Pricilla Lopez do her number again several years later in the DVD "My Favorite Broadway, the leading ladies".

Wow, this show captures the heart of theater. It really does, you just have to know where to look. The Passion is in the dance, which is what the entire musical is about, "dancers," seeking a part. However, to make it something special they needed songs as well. The cast isn't a group of solid, professional Italian Opera stars, but they have so much character in their music. For a theater lover, this is a nice little addition to your collection of musicals.
