A Chorus Line (CRT)

July 13 – 30, A Chorus Line (CRT)
Pavilion at Dwyer Memorial Park, Little York. Conceived and originally directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, with book by James Kirkwood, music by Marvin Hamlisch and Nicholas Dante, and lyrics by Edward Kleban. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and celebrating its 40th anniversary, this dazzling musical tells the story of the unsung heroes of the Broadway stage - the dedicated, talented and overworked chorus dancers. A nine-time Tony-Award winner, this musical and dance spectacular brings to life the dream, the thrill and the hope of the Broadway audition. With one captivating song and dance after another, this show is also a brilliant metaphor for all human aspiration. It features the classic songs What I Did For Love, I Hope I Get It, and the show-stopping finale One! CRT cautions that this show does contain adult language and situations.

If the sign serves multiple buildings, the address to each house or unit served by that right-of-way or shared driveway shall be affixed. If the house or unit is not visible from the point at which the individual driveway breaks from the right-of-way or shared driveway, the address number must also be posted on the house or dwelling or unit.

4. Numbers should be at least 4 inches high.

5. Numbers should be plain block numerals, not script or written numbers.

6. Numbers shall be set on a background or contrasting color, preferably white or black. It is recommended that a retro reflective material be used.
