Editorial Reviews

In the fall of 2006, A Chorus Line came back on Broadway 16 years after its original run closed, and it felt as if it had never left. The new production, put together by alums from the first one, is a carbon copy of Michael Bennett's groundbreaking staging, and the cast recording follows suit. The good news is that Marvin Hamlisch's energetic, pop-inflected score sounds as great as ever; the bad news: well, you might quibble with the staging but when it comes to the CD, there isn't really any bad news. This time around, the songs are performed in the order in which they are performed live, and the recording includes more of the incidental music and the dialogue. Among the highlights are Natalie Cortez's fabulous "Nothing" (check out the Bacharachian trumpet-and-piano arrangements, which aren't all that surprising since co-orchestrator Jonathan Tunick had worked on Bacharach's sole musical, Promises, Promises) and Jessica Lee Goldyn's uproarious "Dance: Ten; Looks: Three." And then there's "One," which remains one of the most memorable songs in the musical-theater catalogue—-lucky for us, we get it twice since it's reprised at the end. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Charlotte D'Amboise can't sing.
C. Ehlers
I would recommend this cast recording to any one who can not get to the show and everyone who has seen it!
Elf
If you have the original cast recording of A Chorus Line, you are missing a lot of the show.

It's nice to see such a great show back on Broadway, but this recording just can't escape the shadow of the orginal (and far superior) production. Most everything feels slowed down - too slowed down. I gave it a couple of listens, but it just didn't have the magic. Best tracks:

At The Ballet
The Music And The Mirror
What I Did For Love
One/Finale

Worth the ticket? - Absolutely!, but pick up the landmark 1975 recording instead of this merely "passable" version.

Well, this is A Chorus Line. I don't hear much difference from the original. Sound quality is a little better, the voices are a little bit better, and there are a few added notes here and there, but overall I don't feel this is a must have if you already own the original. Now if you have to choose between which one to get, I would say get this one. As I've said the sound quality and some voices ARE better on this one, but not so drastically that you need this one. I like A Chorus Line and I am happy I got this CD, but it definitely doesn't wipe the original off the map. I suggest this for collectors, and younger new listeners. Favorite song: "What I Did For Love"

There are several questions I have after listening to this CD.

Why are the tempos so crazy? The opening number plods along like a funeral march, while At The Ballet zips past as if the performers are on crank. Part of me suspects that cast is performing against a pre-recorded accompaniment track.

Why does everything sound so thin? These orchestrations were created to achieve maximum resonance in live acoustic settings. On this CD, it's like every single instrument is separately mic'ed and mixed to within an inch of its life, sometimes to the detriment of the overall sound. Sometimes, obviously live instruments sound like MIDI. Usually it's the sound engineer's job to make the opposite happen!

Why are the vocals so "hot"? In the OBC, there were occasions when the entire chorus would get overwhelmed by reverb and full-sounding orchestra. Now it's the vocals that tear at the balance.

Who cast this show? I'm not going to single any one cast member out because it would rude, but -- oh screw it. You deserve to know. This Cassie is some serious vocal ugly. I didn't once wonder along with Zach why she was stuck auditioning on the line, like I did with Ms. Donna McKechnie's fabulous triple threat.

Why not update some of the orchestrations? I have a deep and abiding respect for Jonathan Tunick (who is among my top three favorite Broadway creative types), but it's 2006. Wah wah pedals are out.

Overall, although this CD is good for completists, it's not going to knock the OBC recording out of it's slot as the definitive A CHORUS LINE recording. If you don't have a Chorus Line CD and are trying to decide which one to buy, track down the re-mastered version of the original broadway cast. It's vintage, but it has a raw warmth that is missing from the revival cast.

If you've seen the revival on Broadway, you know that the entire cast dances beautifully. Unfortunately, you can't see them dancing on the recording and while everyone always thinks of this as a "dancer's show" anyone who has seen the score knows how challenging the music is.

While there are a few cast members with exceptional voices, a few of them (including one in particular - you'll know who when you listen to the recording) fall a bit short of today's standards in the vocal department.

They should have added a song in this version called "Dance 10, Voice 2"...and not for Val!

I was disappointed when I saw the revival on Broadway (again, a few standouts like the actors who play Bebe, Don, Al, Val), but figured that they'd "correct" the vocal mistakes I heard while seeing it live on the recording (where they could do multiple takes). Alas, it's not any better on the recording.

The new orchestrations are nice and it's great that more of the amazing score was included, but this recording falls short. I'm sticking to the original.

Is the new cast album superior to the original cast album? Can't say. Was the original cast album of 'A Chorus Line" superior to the new cast album? Can't say. With the exception of "What I Did For Love" the finale version of "One" and say "I Can Do That" the bulk of the music from "Chorus Line" demands viewing the staged performance of the show to fully appreciate the staccato and quirky rhythms of this exhilerating score.

The singing is on a par with the original but then its the dancing that counts in this show. But Priscilla Lopez from the original as Diana Morales and her thrilling rendition as the lead on "What I Did For Love" is much better than the present Morales, Natalie Cortez while good lacks the heart-breakingly hopeful determination of Ms Lopez.

And although I haven't seen the show as yet I am convinced no one can match the dancing of Donna Mckechnie on "The Music and the Mirror" This was the moment in the original 1975 production when the audience as a whole sucked in their breaths in amazement and awe at the sight of Ms Mckechnie alone on stage in front of the mirrors in one of the most dazzling displays of choreography ever witnessed on a Broadway stage.

This Cd is also ten minutes longer and contains a bit of dialogue and bits of music edited out of the original recording and virtually restores the entire twenty minute sequence of "Hello,Twelve, Hello Thirteen,Hello Love"

When all is said and done this is a grand recording of "A Chorus Line" and it can hold its' head up high next to the revered original and all I can say to the new "Line" is... WELCOME.
