Long legacy

“I Hope I Get It,” “What I Did For Love,” “I Can Do That,” “Sing!,” and “One” are all monumental show tunes replayed so often in the popular consciousness that it’s easy to forget they all have a common origin—1975’s monster musical, A Chorus Line. The production won nine Tony Awards (including Best Musical and Best Choreography), as well as the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and by the time it closed in 1984, it was the longest-running Broadway show ever. An exploration of colorful personalities thrown into the crockpot of a Broadway audition, A Chorus Line remains a towering figure in the rich canon of musical classics.

Opening 12/7

Through 1/12 $25,8pm. Live Arts, 123 E. Water St. 977-4177.
