The Public Theater's logo reminds me of that one John Mulaney skit about the Happy Birthday sign.
I know I'm late to this party, but based on the other comments made here, I felt compelled to say something.
We should applaud performers who pay tribute to previous performers- never criticize a tribute performance!
Shouts to Lin-Manuel Miranda for, on top of being a brilliant creator, performer, and director/producer, having an empathic, generous, and inspiring heart.
It was my first love in the theater. I worked at Hojo's in Times square and would go and see it standing room almost once a week. The first time I saw it, it was $5. the last time $20. It was kind of funny because members of the cast and the ushers started to recognize me. Donna McKechnie came back for a while and I found myself going almost every other day. These people sure got me past a lot of hard times, I feel like I know each and every one of them and the generations that followed at the Shubert. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for all the wonderful memories. And for the record, I've seen just about every person who ever performed in it at the Shubert and nothing ... NOTHING compares to the original cast.
I think giving the chorus members of Hamilton was a brilliant nod of appreciation to all those who are the backbone of any show, just as the plot of ACL. Also, several of the original cast members died of AIDS. No room for criticism here.
Chorus Line easily one of the most brilliant shows EVER written.
My G-d! Has it
So much joy here. Well on stage. Not in the comments.
What it must have felt like for the original cast members to stand on that stage again!! This will never happen again.
"Go get in your line, go get in your line!" Hahaha.
This came across my youtube feed and so glad it did! Brought a smile to my face. I was obsessed with A Chorus Line back then and with Hamilton now. What a way to feel good during these lockdown days. Love how they let the chorus cast sing the tune!!!!
Wow, this is one of the once in a lifetime moments you sometimes are lucky enough to experience on Broadway (off Broadway?). Thank goodness there is now YouTube.
I'm little late to the party on this, too, but oh wow!! What a celebration. Chorus Line changed my life, too. I never made it into the show, but even auditioning for it in LA at the Pantages was thrilling. Waited three hours to go on stage, then stood in a line of 10, each one of us walked forward one by one, stated our name, did a time step and a double pirouette. Oh how I wished I had had the nerve to say, "would it be okay if I sang first?!!" Needless to say, by dance wasn't my strong suit. But just to be on that stage where the show would take place was so special. I still know every song and I still celebrate what a joy Chorus Line was and will always be. This clip was such a perfect tribute!! Thank you!!!
So moving, brought tears to my eyes. I love Broadway. Will I ever see another Broadway musical again?
this is wonderful. it brings me tears of happiness. The younger tribute and celebrate the older. We are continuing and inheriting our previous generations' legacy and we deeply appreciate that. Don't we? Thank you for posting this. I believe these beauties are all around us!
Thank you Marvin Hamlisch. What a gift his music is to the world! RIP
Truly "One Singular Sensation"..... Seeing all these Broadway actors, actresses all together.🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗😍😍😍😍😍💗💗💗💗💗💗
Thank you so much for posting this. I was in tears. THANK YOU!
I saw A Chorus Line the first time I was ever in New York. There was a line that made me burst into tears -- the boyfriend I was with knew me so well that he grabbed my hand half a second before I started to cry. Memorable all 'round....
