A Chorus Line is a Broadway musical by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante that debuted in 1975, and ran until 1990, becoming one of the longest-running musicals in Broadway history. The show was also made into a film in 1985. It is about nineteen performers who hope to earn a spot in a Broadway chorus line.
