Michael Bennett's 1975 production was restaged by Bob Avian and Baayork Lee, opening at the Schoenfeld Oct. 5, 2006, following a six-week run at San Francisco's Curran Theatre.
Produced by John Breglio, who also serves as the legal representation for the estate of the late Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line has a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by the late Edward Kleban.
The design team for the 2006 restaging reunited much of the original creative team, including Robin Wagner (sets), Theoni V. Aldredge (costumes), Natasha Katz and Tharon Musser (lighting) and Acme Sound Partners (sound). Musical direction and supervision is by Patrick Vaccariello, with updated orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, Billy Byers and Hershey Kay and vocal arrangements are by Don Pippin.
The national tour of A Chorus Line currently plays Portland, Oregon's Keller Auditorium.
