Forty-four cast members from the 2006 Broadway revival of A Chorus Line took part in a quarantine version of the opening number’s dance sequence. Check out Tony Yazbek, Mario Lopez, Lorin Latarro, Tyler Hanes, Tony nominee Charlotte D’Amboise, and more in the video above.
Jeffrey "Shecky” Schecter, who played Mike in the cast, came up with the idea for the video and proposed it in a private Facebook group for stage alums of the production. The video was edited by Heather Parcells, who played Judy Turner in the revival.
As people started to share their videos on the Facebook group, a reunion began in the isolation. The group became a cast again, interacting and cheering each other as people shared their dances. “We were all looking forward to something,” the cast shared in a statement. “While we currently live in a completely uncertain world, having knowledge of something good coming our way was enough to get us through the next day. Now it's time to share our joy with everyone. Because, after all...it's what we did for love.”
