The extraordinary musical returned to the West End stage in 2012 to critical acclaim, the year in which its composer Marvin Hamlisch sadly passed away. Now in 2013, the show has been nominated for Best Musical Revival and Leigh Zimmerman who plays Sheila has been nominated for Best Actress in a Musical.
There's no denying that for me A Chorus Line holds a special place in my heart and it kills me that financial circumstances are keeping me from buying a ticket and reviewing the current production; however its great to see that such an iconic musical can still make an impact on the stage to this day. Originally staged in 1976, to still have music, lyrics and a book that remain relevant in 2013 is no easy feat.
With hit songs such as "At The Ballet", "One" and "What I Did For Love", A Chorus Line is a stunning and moving piece of theatre that should be seen on the stage where possible!
A Chorus Line is booking at the London Palladium until early 2014. Check out the press release below for details on how to nab yourself some tickets

The revival of A Chorus Line at the world famous London Palladium has received nominations for Best Musical Revival and Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for Leigh Zimmerman (Sheila) in this year’s Laurence Olivier Awards. The winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony which will take place at the Royal Opera House on Sunday 28 April 2013.
A Chorus Line remains one of the hottest tickets in town as the Leicester Square ticket office, run by TKTS, confirmed that Michael Bennett’s award-winning production broke the record for the highest number of tickets sold for a single performance on Saturday night.
Tickets are on sale until early 2014 for the critically acclaimed production which promises to remain one of London’s most popular musicals throughout the year.
André Ptaszynski said “Really Useful Theatres are delighted with the quality and critical response to this important revival of A Chorus Line. We are committed to the show running at the London Palladium into early 2014 and maybe beyond.”
For the first time since its first London season, which opened in 1976 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical, a full London revival of the Broadway Production began previews at the London Palladium on February 5th 2013, and opened to rave reviews on Tuesday February 19th.
