Music Review: A Chorus Line: Original Broadway Cast Recording
This is a CD of the music of "A Chorus Line" a musical about stage dancers. As you can imagine the music leaves something to be desired. However there are a few silver linings. "Nothing" which I first heard performed at our Broadway reviews, is my favorite. It has a twist of humor that is always welcome. And then "One" the most commonly played song from the musical is also very well done. There is the original and then the reprise for the curtain call. "Dance Ten, Looks Three" also has a very good message. Sometimes we are just overly compulsive about looks. Music by Martin Hamlisch and lyrics by Edward Kieban.
