Opening this week at the Paper Mill Playhouse is the classic “A Chorus Line”, the “singular sensation” since 1975. The cast will include Paper Mill veterans and Broadway talent, proving that you don’t need to cross a bridge or tunnel to experience the most exceptional talent the country has to offer.

Paper Mill Playhouse, known for world-class productions, brought it all to the table (or stage, as it were) for this inter-generational audience favorite. With chart-busting musical numbers from Marvin Hamlisch (a score that has won nearly every award one can imagine), the cast has audience members singing along in their seats.

The show begins at the audition of a score of dancers for a show that is unnamed. As the show’s director whittles them down both by talent and by questioning them (he wishes to get to know thier personalities), we find out more about what made the dancers who they are, and what brought them to the stage. From Paul’s moving, teary confession, to Morales, who had a rough time in school because she felt “Nothing”, to a newlywed couple who want to make it together- we wonder who the director will choose. He has only room for 4 boys, 4 girls. (For the rest of the story, please read HERE)


  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a live musical. I saw a live Shakespeare play, and I was a part of high school musicals years ago. But I’ve never actually been to one as a viewer. I think it would be a neat experience.

  2. I’ve never seen a musical but I want to so badly!

  3. I have never gone to see a musical – this sounds like a great one, though! One day…

  4. I’ve always wanted to see a show on broadway or musical in real life instead of just on tv. I’ll have to start looking at what’s local in my area.

  5. I haven’t been to a good show in a while. This looks fabulous!
