A CHORUS LINE (musical) music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban, and a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante. Pittsburgh CLO July 26 – 31

 “One Singular Sensation” is a great number from the upcoming Pittsburgh CLO  production, A Chorus Line. The musical was written by the late Marvin Hamlish (who also conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony’s Pops series for a number of years). A Chorus Line chronicles the highs and lows in the lives of 17 up-and-coming dancers who are competing for spots on a chorus line. It’s a celebration of the unsung heroes of musicals, the chorus dancers. The musical had several very popular songs including “What I Did for Love,” “One,” and “I Hope I Get It” The play won a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize. Benedum Center, 237 7th St., Cultural District.
