There have been several stunning virtual choral performances with gorgeous harmonies, like the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus's performance of "Truly Brave," a mash-up of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors" and Sara Bareilles's "Brave." Rosie O'Donnell hosted a 3.5-hour show chock-full of performers singing from the great Broadway songbook, and last week Lady Gaga, Elton John, and Adam Lambert were among those who performed at home to raise money via the Global Citizen Festival. But aside from a few TikTok dance numbers, the cast members from the 2006 Broadway revival of A Chorus Line appear to be the only ones to perform a full-on choreographed dance number while in isolation.
In the performance, conceived of by Jeffrey Schechter, who played Mike in the revival, and edited by Heather Parcells, more than 42 cast members from that production joined in on the virtual dance number to the beloved musical from Michael Bennett, which first premiered on Broadway in 1975.
The cast of the revival performs while in isolation from their "living rooms, backyards, empty streets and parking lots, which are cut together into 'one singular sensation,' in a performance by turns nostalgic, humorous, and unifying," according to the official video description. Occasionally, a child or a pet can be seen bopping into the frame.
Among the cast members who kick it up for the video are Alisan Porter, Paul McGill, Schecter, Jason Tam, Natalie Cortez, Deidre Goodwin, Yuka Takara, Mara Davi, Tony Yazbeck, Jessica Lee Goldyn, and Charlotte D'Amboise.
Watch the uplifting performance below. "A five, six, seven, eight!"
