WEDNESDAY 7/17-SATURDAY 7/27. Argenta Community Theater, North Little Rock. $30.
Earnest, tense and funny, “A Chorus Line” endures as a Broadway classic because of its ability to capture the individual within the ensemble, and perhaps for its ability to give musical theater fiends and aspirational performers alike a chance to watch their dreams acted out onstage. First produced in 1975, the high-energy show follows a group of Broadway dancers auditioning to be part of a chorus line in a musical, and the dancers’ inner lives and struggles take center stage as they regale the musical’s director and assistant with stories about difficult childhoods, sexuality, love, body image and sacrifices made in pursuit of fame.
