Reviews from the Boston papers.
By Louise Kennedy in the Boston Globe:
'Chorus Line' still gets kick from group dynamicMore from the Globe...
What's surprising about "A Chorus Line," which officially opened last night at the Opera House, is how fresh and how classic it feels.
The show's original Broadway run began in 1975 and ended in 1990. But this national tour, which follows on the heels of the 2006 Broadway revival that closed this summer, reveals the enduring strength and ageless appeal of Michael Bennett's signature work.
And a different point of view from Lauren Beckham Falcone in the Boston Herald:
‘Chorus Line’ kicks aren’t what they used to be
More from the Herald...
“A Chorus Line” is timeless in its themes - love, ambition, betrayal. And it is, as original co-choreographer Bob Avian told the Herald last week, Broadway’s first reality show/competition, long before “American Idol” took over the world.
The problem is, “A Chorus Line” is less like “The Real World” and more like that aunt who still wears blue eyeshadow and can’t stop talking about Studio 54. It’s dated.
