6.5 million singular sensations

One of my favorite stage musicals, A Chorus Line, opened on Broadway today in 1975. It ran for eight years, won nine Tony awards and a Pulitzer Prize for drama, and introduced about 6.5 million people to Mike, Bobby, Sheila, Bebe, Maggie, Kristine, Al, Mark, Gregory, Diana, Don, Richie, Judy, Connie, Val, Cassie, and the demanding director, Zach.

If you never heard the origins Broadway recording, do yourself a favor and borrow it from the library or buy it for your collection. It’s an amazing — and sometimes almost frightening — theatrical example of what happens when people get real with each other about their lives, their drives, and the barriers that become stepping stones.

What a show!
