Theater Thursday


It's Thursday so that can only mean one thing around these parts. It's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, A Chorus Line.

The 1985 A Chorus Line stars Michael Douglas as a casting director who's looking to fill 12 spots for dancers in a new broadway musical. The day starts out with dozens of hopeful dancers trying to make it to the next round of auditions. As the day goes on and as dancers get sent home, they begin to get more and more nervous. 

What the dancers don't know, is what the director wants. Douglas pushes them to open up like they've never done before during an audition. Singing and dancing are only two of his requirements. He wants emotions, raw talent and honesty. As the day goes on the dancers and director begin to get at the end of their ropes. 

Who will make The Chorus Line? Who will be out? If you've never seen this movie, it's a good mix between dancing, singing and acting! Watch it!

Gah! Love this movie! I remember watching it as a giggly pre-teen and laughing over the song where she said Tits and Ass. Haha. Ok, so many I still giggle about that .

One of our competitors in high school did the big number at state competition. I've been obsessed every since! I finally saw it live when they came last year during the Broadway Series

I haven't seen this film but it's sounds fun. Although hubby isn't really into singing in a film - perhaps I'll watch it while he's at work!

I've never seen this, but then again I'm not really a movie person so I haven't seen almost any of the big ones. Ha. But I have seen the Sex and the City movies about fifty billion times! ;)
