“A Chorus Line” held the record as the longest-running show on Broadway for 15 years and heralds nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Director and Best Choreographer, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
The Ogunquit Playhouse production of “A Chorus Line” will feature Broadway sets and costumes.
The show follows 17 would-be dancers in their quest to make the cut for a new Broadway musical.
Lamas is best known for his “bad boy” action-adventure roles on television and in film, most notably TV’s “Falcon Crest,” “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “Renegade.” He made his stage debut at the Ogunquit Playhouse in 2007 as the King in “The King and I.”
Lamas is the son of actors Arlene Dahl and the late Fernando Lamas.
“A Chorus Line” will be directed by the world-renowned Luis Villabon who has restated Michael Bennett’s original direction and choreography for many companies, most recently the Italian National Tour. Villabon’s career began as a dancer in “A Chorus Line,” directed and restaged by Baayork Lee, choreographer for the recent Broadway revival. He has played several roles and has served as Lee’s assistant on several productions of the show.
Ogunquit will stage five productions in its 2009 season.
After “Chorus Line,” the season continues with Broadway meeting “Laugh-In” in the frothy, infectious, all-new production of “Shout! The Mod Musical,” June 17 through July 11.
Gangsters, gamblers, missionary dolls and showgirls come to town in hit Broadway musical comedy “Guys and Dolls,” July 15 through Aug. 8. Next on stage is “Singin’ in the Rain,” based on the joyous MGM film, Aug. 12 through Sept. 12. The season concludes with Elvis Presley hits roaring to life in the new Broadway musical “All Shook Up,” starring Sally Struthers.
Performances are Tuesday through Sunday, from Memorial Day to Columbus Day weekend. Main stage tickets, $39 to $58, are available online and by calling 646-5511. For more information about the season, visit www.ogunquitplayhouse.org.
