LONDON, U.K. — This production is the first revival of A Chorus Line since it premiered in London in 1976, winning itself an Oliver Award for Best New Musical. The show is directed by West End veteran Bob Avian, who co-choreographed the original 70’s production. The revival will feature some of the musicals most celebrated show numbers such as “I Can do That,” “I Hope I Get It,” “What I Did for Love,” “Nothing,” and of course, “One (Singular Sensation).”

The show will be a fitting tribute to A Chorus Line’s original composer, Marvin Hamlisch who sadly passed away in August 2012. Hamlisch was a great friend of the London Palladium theatre owner, Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has since paid tribute to his friend as well as expressing his enthusiasm for the forthcoming revival.
