Broadway’s iconic dance musical comes to Sydney

A Chorus Line opened on Broadway in 1975. Ten Tony Awards®, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and countless international plaudits later, it remains one of the most successful musicals of all time.

This dynamic production, twice postponed by COVID-19, features bold new choreography by director Amy Campbell (In the Heights (Helpmann Nominated for Best Choreography), HAIR, Funny Girl), and musical direction by Damon Wade, with musical supervision by Andrew Worboys (RENT, American Psycho).

Conceived and originally directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line ripped down the curtain to reveal the struggles of Broadway performers to be seen, heard, recognised and respected.

During a gruelling musical theatre audition, desperation will open the door to exploitation, and racism and sexism are rife. Featuring the music of Marvin Hamlisch (including 'Dance Ten; Looks Three', 'What I Did for Love' and 'One') and based on interviews with real dancers, A Chorus Line shows what it means to put everything on the line. 

Produced by Darlinghurst Theatre Company

Conceived and Originally Directed and Choreographed by Michael Bennett
Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante
Music by Marvin Hamlish
Lyrics by Edward Kleban
Co-Choreographed by Bob Avian

Original Broadway production produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival, Joseph Papp, Producer, in association with Plum Productions, Inc.

A Chorus Line is presented by permission of ORiGiN™ Theatrical on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC, A Concord Theatricals Company.

"One of the greatest musicals to ever hit Broadway"

The New York Times

"A Chorus Line is not only the finest ‘backstage musical,’ but it is the best dance show ever.”

Chicago Critic

Frequently Asked Questions - Performance and Venue

What time do I need to arrive before the event?

Ticket purchases and collection at our Box Office is discouraged and eTicket or postal delivery methods should be used, wherever possible. However, if you are collecting your tickets from the Box Office, we recommend doing this at least 60 minutes before the event starts. If you have already received your tickets, the venue doors will be open 45 minutes pre-show for Concert Hall and Joan Sutherland Theatre performances, and 30 minutes pre-show for Western Foyer venue performances. Please take your seats as soon as you arrive. 

If you are late, we will seat you as soon as we can and, where possible, in your allocated seat. However, to reduce movement in the venue as well as minimise disruption to the performance and other patrons, ticketholders may be seated in an allocated latecomer’s seat. Please be aware that some events have lock-out periods. In these cases, latecomers will be admitted at a suitable break in the performance. On occasions, this may not be until the interval, or at all where there is no interval.

Cloaking facilities will be open 60 minutes pre-show for Concert Hall and Joan Sutherland Theatre performances, and 60 minutes pre-show for Western Foyer venue performances. However it is strongly encouraged that you travel lightly to minimise contact and queuing. Any bags larger than an A4 piece of paper will need to be checked into the Cloak Room.
