When: Tue., Nov. 8 2011
What could be meatier for a troupe of show-biz hopefuls than sinking their teeth into A Chorus Line, the 1975 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that dissects the hopes and dreams of 19 Broadway actors? Students from Kent State's School of Theatre and Dance have been doing just that since November 4. Professional actor Jim Weaver, a vet of both regional theater and Broadway, brings a little real-world wisdom to the boards. So do artistic director Terri Kent and choreographer MaryAnn Black (who played Maggie in the first national Chorus Line tour, then took the role to Broadway). Performances continue through November 13 at the E. Turner Stump Theatre in the Music and Speech Building. Tonight's curtain is at 8 p.m. Tickets are $16, by phone or online. — Cicora 1325 Theater Dr., Kent, 330-672-2497, theatre.kent.edu.
