Tibbits Summer Theatre’s current revival of the 1950 “Guys and Dolls” proves right on the money, still.

“A Chorus Line” may not be as gritty and shocking as it was when it first came out in 1975, but it is still an extravaganza of dance and a moving look at those who are trying to make their living as dancers on Broadway.

Seventeen dancers have made the final cut of an audition for the chorus line of an upcoming musical. Only eight are needed for the show. As they audition and are interviewed, they reveal pieces of their soul and why dancing is so important to their lives.
