Paper Mill Playhouse kicked off its 2012-13 season with the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A Chorus Line, featuring the music of the late Marvin Hamlisch. The production opened Oct. 7 and was followed by a tribute to the late Tony Award-winning composer.

Directly following the curtain call, over 50 A Chorus Line Broadway alumni, including Kelly Bishop, joined the Paper Mill cast on stage as they reprised a section of the "Finale" in tribute to Mr. Hamlisch.

Here, director-choreographer Mitzi Hamilton, who provided the inspiration for the character of Val, and Bishop, who originated the role of Sheila, speak about Hamlisch before they are joined by a group of Chorus Line veterans.
