A Chorus Line is set for a revival at the London Palladium early next year. The musical will begin performances on 2 February and is currently booking until 29 June. Its producers have said that the revival is intended as a tribute to the show's composer Marvin Hamlisch, who passed away on 6 August.
The show's 2013 run at the Palladium will be its first full London outing since the 1976 transfer of its original Broadway production to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane which played for three years.
A Chorus Line is probably Hamlisch's best-known work, but the three-time Best Song Oscar winner composed dozens of other acclaimed scores for film and theatre, including The Way We Were and Sweet Smell Of Success: The Musical.
Owner of the London Palladium and fellow composer Andrew Lloyd Webber said in a statement: "Marvin Hamlisch was a great friend and supporter in my early career and I can think of no more fitting tribute to him than this major revival."
The London revival of A Chorus Line is produced by Mark Goucher, Adam Kenwright, ACT Productions, Tim Lawson, Daniel Sparrow & Mike Walsh Productions by arrangement with John Breglio and A Chorus Line Broadway.
