Try and try and try as we might, we cannot find an "I'M.IN.TECH." gif. If you are so inclined to make and send us one, we would be eternally grateful...

Because, y'all, Erica Dorfler is IN.TECH. Listen to her latest Rehearsal Report to find out what happens when the hypothetical rehearsal room tape becomes real floor and stairs and props, making changes at lightning speed, and running a number a little toooooo fast. Enjoy!

#90: A Chorus Line

October 23, 2016

Well, friends, we've arrived. It's the ensemblist show of all ensemblist shows. With music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante, A Chorus Line distills the experience of fighting for what you love, going after what you believe in, and being exactly who you are the whole time, no matter what. Universal themes, yes, but through a specific Broadway lens. Clearly, our love for this masterpiece runs DEEP. We sat down with Michael Berresse, Mara Davi, and Catherine Ricafort to talk about why this show is so special, so relevant, and so worthy of the Pulitzer. Enjoy!
