London revives ‘Chorus Line’

West End production kicks off in February

LONDON — “A Chorus Line” will receive its first London revival since the original production, opening in February at the London Palladium on the West End.

Directed by the tuner’s original co-choreographer Bob Avian, the show is produced by Mark Goucher, Adam Kenwright, ACT Prods., Tim Lawson, Daniel Sparrow and Mike Walsh Prods. by special arrangement with John Breglio and A Chorus Line Broadway. Breglio

was the lead producer of the 2006 Broadwy revival, and also is the executor of the estate of “Chorus Line” co-creator Michael Bennett.

London production will play a strictly limited season running Feb. 2-June 29 at the 2,255-seat house owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Announcement comes in the wake of the death of the show’s composer Marvin Hamlisch. Lloyd Webber commented: “Marvin Hamlisch was a great friend and supporter in my early career and I can think of no more fitting tribute to him than this major revival.”

Bennett’s original production, which opened in London at the Theater Royal Drury Lane in July 1976, ran almost three years there in contrast to the 15-year original Broadway run. Casting for the Brit revival has yet to be announced.
