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

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"

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.

It was, and remains, one singular sensation. A Chorus Line changed the face of American musical theater, with an urbane book by Nick Dante and James Kirkwood and sophisticated yet obvious lyrics and music by Ed Kleban and Marvin Hamlisch. The Pulitzer prize-winning musical has been resurrected in Broadway and on CD . . . And we can't wonder why. Those familiar with the original cast recording will cringe at the flatness of the "new" recording, a recording that's simultaneously intrusive on the memory and superfluous in any collection. Is this what Baayork Lee did for love?

Having seen the original in 1975 shortly after it opened, and subseqeuntly, different casts over the years, I was hugely disappointed in this production. While it would be unfair to expect the current revival to have the same impact as the original (they were, after all, playing their own lives), this is oddly unmoving. Every performer seems to be "acting", whereas the original, they all came aross as natural and real.
Charlotte D'Amboise is talented but her performance is forced. Though she is constantly at work in NY, she lacks that something that would make her a megawatt Broadway star. Donna MacKechnie had that quality. In ACL she was heartbreaking, her dancing was pure passion and desperation, and you totally understood why she could not blend into the chorus, she was such a standout, so amazingly talented with such star quality it was sometimes difficult to stop watching her when the other cast members were performing. D'Amboise comes across as just another member of the ensemble, and in The Music and The Mirror, is really emoting, and dancing really, really hard. In her singing she punches every word and every lyric as if to say " I am an actress!!!" Her song is difficult to listen to.
While there is a little more music on this cast album, stick to the OBC to get what it was all about.
I thought to the novice who'd never seen ACL, that this production would seem wonderful, but I have a sister and her husband who recently saw this (and had never seen any production before) and they found it rather dull and ineffective. The original simply overwhelmed with it's brilliance...not here. BTW avoid the dismal mess of a movie at all costs.
Still, when a musical such as ACL chnges the face of musical theater, I say "Bravo" to any production available!!
