Mac-Haydn Theatre Presents A Chorus Line

The Mac-Haydn Summer 2022 Season kicks off with A Chorus Line, opening June 23rd.

The history-making sensation returns to the Mac-Haydn stage! Winner of 9 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, A Chorus Line explored the realities of life as a professional theater dancer in an entirely new way, redefining the parameters of musical theater forever.

A Chorus Line takes us inside the pressure cooker of a final casting call for a new Broadway musical. Our dancers are asked to give everything they have in the hopes of realizing the dream they have worked their whole lives for. This turbulent, true-to-life depiction of the performer’s experience is the ultimate love letter to the stage, highlighting the personal hardships, triumphs and failures that surface when we pursue our aspirations.

Coming to the Mac-Haydn stage for only the third time, this A Chorus Line will be an experience like no other. Intimate and visceral, you will feel like part of the audition. Featuring such classic hits as “What I Did for Love,” “One,” “I Hope I Get It”, this masterpiece of live theater will resonate with anyone who has ever pursued a dream, and inspire those who have not.

Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante
Music by Marvin Hamlisch
Lyrics by Edward Kleban
Co-Choreographed by Bob Avian
