After a delay from Hurricane Ian, Broadway Palm’s 30th anniversary season kicks into high gear with A Chorus Line playing Oct. 13 through Nov. 12.
Broadway Palm has been an integral part of Southwest Florida for 30 years and they are committed to aid in the recovery of the community during this devastating time. The Broadway Palm team kept very busy before, during, and after the storm by donating their time to local organizations and helping friends, family, and members of the community. The theatre was a resource for food and water immediately following the storm and they partnered with World Central Kitchen to amplify efforts. In addition, Broadway Palm will be donating a portion of ticket sales directly to local Hurricane Ian relief funds.
The original musical was an unprecedented box office hit receiving twelve Tony Award nominations and winning nine. This sensational musical captures the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition.
Thousands auditioned, 17 get to the stage, but in the end only eight will win the chance to dance! A Chorus Line explores the inner lives and bittersweet ambitions of professional Broadway performers. The show features one powerhouse number after another and is a brilliant fusion of song, dance, and authentic drama. The memorable score includes “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” “I Hope I Get It” and more!.
A Chorus Line is being directed and choreographed by Amy Marie McCleary. This is an extra special show for McCleary as this was the first show in which she worked with Prather Productions, twenty years ago as a cast member. Since her performing debut, she has performed in, directed and/or choreographed countless productions for Broadway Palm and Prather Productions.
