"One Singular Sensation" In Georgetown At The Palace Theatre With A Chorus Line

Excitement is in the air!  A CHORUS LINE opens at the Historic Palace Theatre in Georgetown on Friday, August 10, to run for 5 weekends!  With music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban, and book by James Kirkwood, Jr., and Nicholas Dante, A CHORUS LINE was conceived and originally directed on Broadway by Michael Bennett.  The Palace’s production is directed by Danny Herman, who was on Michael Bennett’s original development team.  Danny generates the Pulitzer Prize-winning intensity and passion – as well as a "Broadway" look and feel – to our production of this classic!  With Rocker Verastique as Choreographer and Lannie Hilboldt as Music Director, these memorable musical/dance numbers really shine:  I Can Do That, Dance Ten Looks Three, What I Did for Love, One (Singular Sensation), and I Hope I Get It.

A CHORUS LINE is a 1975 musical about Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line and is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during these auditions.  The show provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers.

The original Broadway production, directed and choreographed by Buffalo NY native Michael Bennett, was an unprecedented box office and critical hit, receiving 12 Tony Award nominations and winning nine of them, in addition to the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  The show has enjoyed many successful productions worldwide and was revived on Broadway in 2006.  What a way to close out the 2011-2012 Season at the Palace! 

Performances run Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.  Tickets are $24 for general admission, $22 for seniors (55 ), $14 for students (13-22) and active military, and $10 for children (12 and younger). 

The Palace Theatre is located at 810 South Austin Avenue in downtown Georgetown just off the town square.  For tickets and more information, call (512) 869-7469 or (512) 869-5081 or visit www.TheGeorgetownPalace.org.
