MOT & Theater RED present "A Chorus Line"

Two local theater companies, one singular sensation! 

They say A Chorus Line is a ground-breaking spectacle, revitalizing the American musical in 1975 with its focus on an ensemble cast of characters inspired by the real lives of Broadway dancers. 

The show chronicles the ambitions, dreams, and daily struggles that befall any Broadway hopeful, and does so in a mix of dialogue, monologue, montages, and show-stoppers. The structure was, in 1975, revolutionary, and is no less revered by avid lovers of musical theater today.

This weekend at Cardinal Stritch University, two Milwaukee theater companies are further revolutionizing this Broadway classic, adapting A Chorus Line to a concert format. With Milwaukee Opera Theatre's singer-centric art and commitment to reimagining classic and contemporary lyric theater, and Theater RED's dedication to roles for women and growth in craft for artists, their combined efforts are guaranteed to yield one singular sensation. 

As if the missions of these small-but-mighty companies weren't enough to pique interest, the cast boasts 100% local Milwaukee artists — and that really is something to brag about. Our city is teeming with such talent, and the performers assembled for A Chorus Line do so much more than keep local theater afloat — they truly make it soar. 

This weekend, for two nights only, take flight with some of Milwaukee's brightest stars. A Chorus Line is playing at Cardinal Stritch University, August 27 & 28, at 7:30 pm. Tickets here!
