The program will include performances of "Hello Twelve, Hello Thirteen, Hello Love" and "One" and can be seen in New York City on WABC Channel 7 at 7 AM. That same day, "Nightline" will feature an exclusive backstage look at the return of the landmark musical with rehearsal footage, interviews with the cast and creative team, and performance footage from the new production. "Nightline" can be seen on WABC Channel 7 at 11:30 PM.
The revival — produced by John Breglio, the entertainment lawyer who represented A Chorus Line's chief creator Michael Bennett during his life and now handles his estate — will officially open on Oct. 5.
The show is directed by Bob Avian, the co-choreographer of the original production, which was helmed by the late Bennett. Original cast member Baayork Lee is handling the choreography. The design team includes Robin Wagner (sets), Theoni V. Aldredge (costumes) — both of whom worked on the original — and Natasha Katz and Tharon Musser (lighting) and Acme Sound Partners (sound).
