A Chorus Line

A Chorus Line at the London Palladium

A Chorus Line returned to London in 2013. It has now closed.

Check what is now on at the London Palladium.

Auditions are underway for a new Broadway musical. For everyone present, it could be the chance of a lifetime. For some, the opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed of – to have the chance to dance on Broadway – for others, it’s a ticket to re-starting a stalled career.

Told through captivating song, riveting drama and stunning choreography, the auditionees describe the events that have shaped their lives and led them to become dancers.

Based on true stories, A Chorus Line revolutionised Broadway, becoming the longest running musical in New York theatre history, breaking records, winning nine Tony Awards, seven Drama Desk Awards, the New York Critic’ Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Now for the first time since its award‐winning London season premiered in 1975, the original creators join forces to bring this legendary musical to the world‐famous London Palladium.

Chocca block full of brilliant songs- ‘One (Singular Sensation)’, ‘What I Did For Love’ and ‘At The Ballet’, A Chorus Line is an iconic musical masterpiece that should not be missed.

Leading a cast and company of over 50, JOHN PARTRIDGE will play Zach (Cats, Grease, Miss Saigon EastEnders). West End leading lady SCARLETT STRALLEN will play Cassie (Singin’ in the Rain, Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang). Stage screen actress LEIGH ZIMMERMAN will play Sheila (Chicago, The Producers, The Girl in the Yellow) and VICTORIA HAMILTON-BARRITT will play Diana (Gypsy, West Side Story).

The London Palladium is just off Oxford Street just by Oxford Circus. The 5 star Courthouse Hotel is just round the corner with it fascinating nod to what it used to be (yes a courthouse, so the bar has cells in it! What Fun!).

The St Giles is yet again the best choice of three star hotel being close (just the eastern end of Oxford Street) and with great facilities including pool, gym and to maintain the balance a bar and restaurants.

Of course Mayfair is just across the road so there is a whole raft of posh hotels there including the May Fair and the Sheraton Park Lane, but Bayswater is just a couple of stops on the tube for some good value 3 star hotels. The four star Holiday Inn Regents Park is a good choice too. Otherwise head towards Covent Garden for the usual list of Theatreland hotels.


Tickets are cheaper for preview dates so get in quick and grab yourself a bargain.
