Abstract:

"In many ways, On the Line: The Creation of "A Chorus Line" is a continuation of the show itself. In this collective oral history, the nineteen original cast members tell how they got involved with the project, how they labored through the months of workshops that shaped it, and what its success has meant for their lives and careers. They paint intimate and frank portraits of co-creators Michael Bennett, Joseph Papp, Ed Kleban - and each other." "Originally published in 1990, the book has been updated to continue telling their stories over the past sixteen years. Wayne Cilento ("I Can Do That") has become a Tony-winning choreographer of shows like Wicket and Aida; Kelly Bishop ("Can the adults smoke?") has become a TV star; Trish Garland has become a California fitness guru, and so forth."--book jacket.
