A Chorus Line

A Chorus Line

Chorus in Line-up for London

First Published 7 September 2012, Last Updated 7 September 2012

Mike Bennett’s seminal production of A Chorus Line will receive its first ever London revival next year when it opens at the London Palladium.

Featuring the iconic songs One (Singular Sensations), What I Did For Love, I Can Do That and Hope I Get It, with a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, the Olivier Award-winning musical about 17 dancers auditioning for a Broadway show will play a strictly limited season from 2 February (press night 19 February) to 29 June.

Bennett’s production, which won nine Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in 1975 before going on to become the longest running musical on Broadway at the time, notching up a staggering 6,136 performances, transferred to London in 1976, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical.

Next year’s revival, which marks the first time the musical has been seen in the West End for almost 35 years, will be directed by veteran stage director and co-choreographer of the original production Bob Avian, who also directed the 2006 Broadway revival.

Andrew Lloyd Webber, owner of the London Palladium, described the musical’s arrival in the West End as a way of honouring the show’s composer Marvin Hamlisch, who died last month aged 68, saying: “I am delighted to welcome A Chorus Line into the London Palladium. Marvin Hamlisch was a great friend and supporter in my early career and I can think of no more fitting tribute to him than this major revival.”

A Chorus Line will open at the Palladium following the festive musical fable based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, Scrooge The Musical, which plays from 24 November, booking until 5 January.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
