Get in line for 'Line'

OK, it's confession time.

I've never seen "A Chorus Line."

For a Broadway fan, that's inexcusable. For someone who works in the biz, I could get fired.

I'll get a chance to make up for that lapse this fall when "A Chorus Line" returns to the Schoenfeld Theater on Oct. 5. At one time the longest-running American musical in Broadway history*, it closed in 1990. The backstage plot featured a look at dancers auditioning for a new musical.

The revival will still be set in the mid ''70s, according to a story in Variety. "It's got to stay true to the morality of 1975 and the perspective of the year," original co-choreographer and now director Bob Avian told the magazine.
