Community Education Travel -
Beginning its 67th season of theatre in the Chicago area, the Drury Lane Theatre is the perfect place to escape the winter blues for a presentation of the legendary Broadway show - A Chorus Line! Upon our arrival at Drury Lane, an elegant luncheon is served at the theatre’s restaurant with a preselected choice of entrees before we see one of the most acclaimed Broadway shows of all time! A Chorus Line first opened at the Shubert Theater in 1975 in New York to much critical acclaim and went on to run for a staggering 6,137 performances! This impassioned backstage look at the intimate lives of dancers auditioning for a Broadway chorus brilliantly combines stunning song and dance with a compelling, moving story. Overworked, underpaid and dedicated to their craft, chorus dancers take the spotlight in A Chorus Line. Taking place over the course of a rigorous audition process for an upcoming Broadway tuner, it chronicles the experiences of a group of hopeful performers as they bare their souls and life stories. Beloved around the world, A Chorus Line is the ultimate love letter to Broadway and features memorable numbers including “What I Did for Love,” “One,” and “I Hope I Get It.” The iconic musical won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in addition to nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
