announces 2022 return to Tokyo

Big League Productions Inc., in association with John Breglio, proudly presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning singular sensation, A CHORUS LINE, featuring Michael Bennett’s original Broadway direction and choreography. Following its successful 2018 Tokyo engagement, Big League will once again showcase its ‘singular sensation’ for Japanese audiences, this time at the prestigious Orchard Hall. Performances run in Tokyo from August 11 to 28 following a short sold-out run in Fayetteville, Arkansas June 24 to 26.

In the classic story, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete, and for 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime and what they’ve been working their whole lives for. A CHORUS LINE brilliantly evokes both the glamour and the dark underbelly of showbiz, and resonates with everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. The iconic score features such classics as “What I Did for Love,” “One,” “I Hope I Get It” and more. With its celebration and true-to-life depiction of performers and their struggle to achieve greatness on the Broadway stage, A CHORUS LINE has earned unanimous praise as one of the true masterpieces of live theater.

Big League Productions’ A CHORUS LINE features Michael Bennett’s original work restaged by the legendary Baayork Lee. A director, actress, author and choreographer, Lee played Connie Wong in the original 1975 production of A CHORUS LINE, and has gone on to direct and choreograph more than 35 international productions of the show including the Hollywood Bowl version, and more recently the Antonio Banderas led production in Spain. She was also the recipient of the 2017 Isabelle Stevenson Tony Award for her contributions to theater education programs around the world. The production will feature Robin Wagner’s original set design with costumes, originally designed by Theoni Aldredge, directly from the Spain production starring Antonio Banderas. Lighting design is by Charlie Morrison, sound design by Simon Lambert, and casting by Alison Franck.
