Members of the original company of A Chorus Line, including Tony winner Priscilla Lopez (Diana Morales), Baayork Lee (Connie) and Donna McKechnie (Cassie), attended the March 11 opening night of A Class Act, a musical about the life of Chorus Line lyricist Edward Kleban. A Class Act, an intimate biographical tuner, tells the fictionalized life story of Broadway songwriter Edward Kleban (Lonny Price), who always wanted his work played (as they say in the show), "in a large building in a central part of town in a dark room as part of a play with a lot of people listening, who have all paid a great deal to get it in." Kleban died of cancer before he matched the success he had contributing lyrics to 1975's A Chorus Line, his best known work.
