A Chorus Line is heading for Brisbane, November

The Australian Cast of A Chorus Line, 2012

After successful seasons in Adelaide, Melbourne and Singapore and scheduled runs in both Sydney (July) and Perth (October), the Australian revival of A Chorus Line will be heading to the sunshine state later this year.

According to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), A Chorus Line is set to open at the Lyric Theatre, Brisbane on November 16 for twenty one shows only.

TML Enterprises’ production of this smash hit Broadway musical has proved extremely successful this year. Each season has been short and well marketed, with Melbourne’s 4 week run at Her Majesty’s Theatre boasting $3 million in advance sales prior to opening night and a one week extension due to demand.

Based on true stories, A Chorus Line revolutionised Broadway, becoming the longest running musical in Broadway history, and winning nine Tony Awards, seven Drama Desk awards, the New York Critics Circle award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was also the first ever show to require ‘triple threats’: performers who were strong in the three main areas of performance: Singing, dancing and acting.

No further seasons have been announced at this point, but if you would like to see A Chorus Line in YOUR city, post a comment below!
