A-five, six, seven, eight! On June 23, the Public Theater honors the 40th anniversary of the creation of A Chorus Line with a starry gala. Yes, the Tony and Pulitzer-prize winning musical by Marvin Hamlisch, Edward Kleban, James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante is turning the big 4-0. To celebrate this milestone, we asked you which kicklining hopeful was your favorite—which one would you most like to hang out with at an audition? The resumes and headshots are in and here’s who you picked!
1. Diana Morales—17%
She may not be the best at becoming an ice cream cone (no matter how hard she tries to melt), but this streetwise performer from the Bronx is the real deal. As she proves in her two big numbers, Morales has both the spunk to keep you in check and the heart to make you realize that it’s all worth it in the end. Two things that we’d probably need at an emotional audition process.
2. Bobby Mills—13%
This might come as an absolute shock, but the folks of the Broadway.com editorial team are not known for their athletic skills. Which is why we were pleasantly surprised to find this sharp-tongued joker as a Broadway.com fan favorite. Plus, after breaking into homes to rearrange furniture, he’d probably share some good interior decorating tips during the downtime.
3. Sheila Bryant—11%
As one of the more seasoned dancers of the bunch, Sheila is a bit of a firecracker. She’s admonished by Zach for not taking the audition seriously. But when she opens up about her childhood by kicking off the powerhouse trio “At the Ballet,” we’re all ears. We also suspect she’d make a great movie-night date. The Red Shoes, anyone?
