In 1975, A Chorus Line marked a turning point for Broadway — it’s one of the first shows to broach homosexuality — and paved the way for other groundbreakers like Rent. Set at a dance audition, the musical spotlights the individuality of dancers vying to become part of a homogeneous chorus. This contrast demonstrates that even the background players have struggles and dreams, and the show as a whole is a cathartic experience for the audience and performers alike. Tim Hedgepeth directs The Playhouse’s production, with a reception following Friday’s opening night performance.
