    Thank you for this post! As a musician and retired music teacher/drama coach, this show has meant so much to me. This was the first show I saw in NYC! Saw it just a few weeks after it opened at the Public Theatre for $6!! Later at the Schubert for $60! While in college attending a symposium, we met Donna McKechnie! Many years later, met Marvin Hamlisch! Very special memories! 🎶

    I saw 'A Chorus Line' in September, 1976. My ticket was a whopping $100 ( a lot of $$ -- 44 yrs ago!) It was my first time seeing a Broadway musical and I was just overwhelmed at the creativity and ingenuity that went in to making this musical happen. Now, forty years later, 'Hamilton' is creating a similar magic with its innovation of something very wonderful, creative, and most memorable!

    A Chorus Line was the first Broadway show I saw all the way back in 1982. I’ve loved it ever since and have listened to the original cast recording a million times. I hope I get the chance to see Hamilton on Broadway someday, too.

    And of course Lin Manuel featured the ensemble members and not the stars....and take a look at the difference in diversity between a Broadway cast from 40 years ago and one from 2015.

    My first Broadway Show, and I saw the original cast! I call myself a 'Chorus Line' junkie. LOVE this show. I have seen many local theatre productions and all have been wonderful. A tip of the hat to the cast of 'Hamilton'.

    Beautiful tribute. A Chorus Line is one of my favorite shows. Seen it too many times to count, including the original cast on Broadway in 1975. It never gets old.

    I saw it originally at the Public in 1975 & was six months pregnant. I clapped so hard & cried so much when it ended that my husband was worried that I'd deliver in the theater! What an awesome creation it was & always will be.three months later I had my son,another awesome creation.

    I remember an interview with Michon Peacock and Tony Stevens. They talked about the sessions with dancers, and a tape recorder. The dancers talked about they glory, and the grind of being "gypsies". They said some of the stories were just too heart breaking to put in the production. Several of those dancers from the tape sessions went on to be in the original production. This brings back that broadcast clear as day... Edit: respecting the comma....

      I recall that interview/show as well. So much of the show is the actual stories of real people who lived this life trying to make it on Broadway. Saw a traveling production like ten years ago and it's still a great show. And at the end you cry tears of joy at the finale seeing everyone be their own individual singular sensation.

    Saw it on Broadway when it first came out. It was magnificent. Love this. All actors have parts they always wanted to play but didn't get a chance to. Great to see this.

    This appeared in my queue of Corona parodies. In full screen mode the copyright was eclipsed, but the crowd onstage sans masks dated it.

    I saw this show at age 13, at the Shubert. With no intermission, somewhere along the way I DISAPPEARED...and only came back when the applause began at the end. I was shocked to find myself in a room full of people. Perhaps it was a taste of emotional intimacy that I hadn't experienced to that point, something a teen is exploring and craving. So grateful for being in the right place at the right time, and for the tenacious actors and actresses, and what they did for love.

    Shouts to Lin-Manuel Miranda for, on top of being a brilliant creator, performer, and director/producer, having an empathic, generous, and inspiring heart.

    I saw Chorus Line in NYC and again in Los Angeles. I saw the recent production done at the Hollywood Bowl (2 years ago?). I bought the cast album, then the tape and then the CD. Still listen to it to this day whenever I'm in the car (yes it's old enough to still have a CD player) and I'll play it on my laptop because it has a DVD player. I love the music, the words, the signing. I sing and dance along when I'm home. Can't believe it was 40 years ago!!!!
