The cast is headed by frequent Chicago star Charlotte d'Amboise and The Light in the Piazza's Michael Berresse. D'Amboise plays Cassie, the down-on-her-luck dancer created in the original production by Tony Award winner Donna McKechnie. Berresse plays Cassie's former lover Zach, who is now the director of the show for which Cassie has come to audition.
The revival of A Chorus Line is directed by Bob Avian, the co-choreographer of the original production, which was helmed by the late Michael Bennett. The design team includes Robin Wagner (sets), Theoni V. Aldredge (costumes), Natasha Katz and Tharon Musser (lighting) and Acme Sound Partners (sound).
A Chorus Line has a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by the late Edward Kleban, who later became the subject of the Broadway show A Class Act.
