The Weston Playhouse’s production of A Chorus Line is a treat not to be missed. The cast is comprised of equity actors. The costumes for the finale of ‘One’ are a hit. The songs were flawless. Whether you are a long-time fan of A Chorus Line or simply enjoy theater, this production is sure to please. Afterwards, you may even want to be a star…
I hadn’t been to the Weston Playhouse for at least ten years, and was excited to get back. The town itself is quaint and makes a fun day trip, but we were just there for the evening so we headed straight to the theater. There is a restaurant below the theater that looks out onto the river. We weren’t dining, but were able to enjoy a glass of wine before the show. Just be sure to finish your beverage before the show starts – no food or drink in the theater itself! The restaurant is called Cafe at the Falls; view their menu here.
We enjoyed our wine in a sitting room, and soon the lights flickered and the curtains were rising. My grandmother was like a little girl; she loves A Chorus Line and knows the movie by heart. Since Weston Playhouse is so intimate, it was an amazing experience for her to get to see the show up close – I think we were in the third row!
For those of you who haven’t seen A Chorus Line, here’s the set up (no spoilers – I promise.) A dozen or so dancers are auditioning for eight parts in a big show, and the pressure is on. In the opening song, each one sings “Please God, I need this job!” The story shows that working in the performance arts is no easy feat. The musical takes the form of an audition, one where the dancers and actors are asked to tell the choreographer about their real self. This opens a door to some real emotion, some great songs, and a very unique performance. A Chorus Line shows that the performing arts may treat actors, singers and dancers as head shots – but there’s more behind the photo.
The applause was thunderous as the credits rolled. The songs played over and over again in my head for the following week. We didn’t have time, but usually after each show, there is a Cabaret act at the small stage downstairs to which you may buy tickets.
I’d say the only reason not to see A Chorus Line at the Weston Playhouse is if you absolutely hate musicals. Otherwise, get yourself over to Weston, Vermont!
