Reprising their roles from the Curve run will be Adam Cooper (Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, Singin’ in the Rain) as Zach and Carly Mercedes Dyer (The Drifters Girl, Anything Goes, The Color Purple) as Cassie. Further casting will be announced soon.
The tour will start at the Curve in Leicester from 28 June to 13 July 2024, and also visit The Lowry in Salford, Norwich Theatre Royal, The Marlowe in Canterbury, Birmingham Hippodrome, New Theatre Cardiff, and Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

Directed by Curve’s Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (West Side Story, Billy Elliot The Musical), choreography is by Ellen Kane (Matilda the Musical), set design by Grace Smart (Hamlet, The Globe), costume design by Edd Lindley (Billy Elliot The Musical), lighting design by Howard Hudson (Starlight Express, & Juliet) and sound design by Tom Marshall (Grease).
A Chorus Line has Music by Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by Edward Kleban and a Book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante. The show was originally conceived, directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett with co-choreographer Bob Avian.
The show features iconic songs including One, I Hope I Get It, Nothing and the hit ballad What I Did For Love.
For its run at the Curve in Leicester the show enjoyed some great reviews, including four stars from the Times, Guardian, Stage and Independent.
Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster said in a joint statement: “Working on A Chorus Line in 2021 at Curve was one of those once in a lifetime moments, and to have another opportunity to re-visit our acclaimed production and share it with a wider audience is something we could never have dreamed of. All great shows need exceptional new artists to reinterpret them for the generation to enjoy and in Ellen Kane’s world class choreography, Michael Bennett’s extraordinary piece is invigorated through Ellen’s sensational work. Being able to share this production with audiences in Leicester once more, ahead of visiting the home of dance Sadler’s Wells and then on tour across the UK, reuniting Carly Mercedes Dyer as Cassie and Adam Cooper as Zach is the icing on the cake.”
The show is produced by Sadler’s Wells and Jonathan Church Theatre Productions.
