was my baby's birthday. Due to an unavoidable twist of fate (the death of her BBF's mother), she and her husband were not able to use the tickets he had bought for "A Chorus Line" at the NC Theater. I was the lucky recipient of the tickets and my youngest granddaughter and I were treated to a wonderful show, full of great singing and terrific dancing.
I don't often get to see shows like this, although in year's past we had season tickets for a series, and we saw "The Lion King", "Annie", "Rent", "Barnum" and a few more. I've also seen "The Color Purple" and "The Drowsy Chaperone" on Broadway. Three of my grandchildren have been in theater productions; "Pippin", "The Music Man" and another that I cannot remember the name of, in Greensboro.
I love live music, live theater and all kinds of dancing so I am considering myself very lucky to have been able to see the shows I have. I have read that A Chorus Line is one of a very few shows which has no scenery other than mirrors and no costume changes until the very last scene, and in spite of that, it held our interest. The scenery changes in "The Lion King" and in "The Color Purple" were fairly elaborate, and very interesting to see, and along with the terrific acting, singing and dancing, they made for excellent performances.
This production of A Chorus Line is terrific and I thank my daughter and son-in-law for sharing it with me.
