Priscilla Beach Theatre (PBT) will open its run of the spectacular Broadway hit, "A Chorus Line," on July 7th. Above, Director Emily Maltby demonstrates the desired pose to the rehearsing cast.
Although the saying, "toe the line," seems to have originated with track and field events, it seems equally appropriate in this production.
The stage set is spare featuring only the dancer's line on the floor and the full width mirrors at the rear. And yes, through the magic of Photoshop, I erased my reflection in the mirror.
There's an old joke about a visitor in New York City asking directions by saying "how do you get to Carnegie Hall?" The response: "practice, practice, practice." The cast here for "A Chorus Line," is spending five hours a day for weeks in rehearsal leading up to the opening on July 7th. The breezy ease the performers exhibit doesn't happen by accident. It is the result of painstaking preparation.
