Product Description

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. This 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Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love," plus extensive liner notes featuring memorabilia, cast listings, and previously unpublished photos.

HASH(0xa3f88da4) out of 5 stars A classic! May 20 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A CHORUS LINE is a classic staple of musical theater, having won tons of Tony Awards and was the longest running musical on Broadway of all time until CATS put an end to their record. The story takes place in a theater... simple enough, and it all takes place in one day in which a director named Zack must choose four men and four women to be in the chorus of a musical he's going to direct on Broadway. In the end, the eight are chosen and the rest are heart broken.
There are so many legendary songs in this show, I'd have to list the entire soundrack to name them all. Everyone has their personal favorites. WHAT I DID FOR LOVE, ONE (singular sensation) and NOTHING are probably the most popular.
If you ever want to be able to talk inteligably about musical theater, this soundtrack is a must have classic.

HASH(0xa3f88df8) out of 5 stars Thrilled to have a Chorus Line on CD! Oct. 2 2013

Reliving the original cast of Chorus Line as I drive or sit in traffic is like bringing the original cast into my car! I still have my vinyl but had missed listening to the songs when I'm not at home. This musical is a classic and I'm very happy with my Amazon purchase of this CD.

HASH(0xa3f88ac8) out of 5 stars One Of The Greats! April 25 2008
By Tom George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The original ACL was astonishing in every way. The OBC recording does justice to this masterpiece, capturing all the flavor of the production. Alas, the amazing dancing (especially by Donna McKechnie) can't be seen, but you get the majority of the score and it's wonderful. This is a MUST HAVE for every theater fan/collector/performer.
Forget about the abomination of a movie..totally and completely misses the point, it's just awful!

HASH(0xa428cdbc) out of 5 stars This Says it All Sept. 11 2013
By Emily Dickinson "DCC" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All fellow dancers know that this is THE musical of dance. I'll bet Nigel Lithgoe loves it too. I lost my first copy and couldn't wait to get a replacement. And when I got it, I listened to it constantly! I've backed off on that...a little.
