(T10) Riverside Dinner Theater: A Chorus Line

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 – $101 (Includes round trip passage, lunch, and the show)

imagesA Chorus Line opened at the Shubert Theatre on Broadway on July 25, 1975.  An unprecedented box office and critical hit, the musical won nine Tony Awards including best musical and ran for 6,137 performances. It remains the sixth longest-running Broadway show ever and its success has spawned many successful productions worldwide.  So, you may have seen a production before, but OLLI invites you to experience this “Singular Sensation” one more time on August 15 at Riverside Theater in Fredericksburg.

A Chorus Line celebrates those dedicated singer/dancers who make up the ensemble of a Broadway musical.  Centered on seventeen performers, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition.  The performers dance, sing and bare their souls describing the events that have shaped their lives. The achingly poignant ambitions of these Broadway gypsies to land a job in the show is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration.

*You must register before August 6
