“A Chorus Line” Still Dazzles in Theatre Under the Stars’ Production

“Theatre Under the Stars has once again staged a double-back flip of a dance piece and stuck the landing. Directed by Julie Kramer, this ensemble is as good as any. Nowadays it is rare to find true “triple threats,” performers who can act, sing and dance to a high degree. TUTS’ “A Chorus Line” assembles nearly 20 multi-talented actors of such caliber.

Sarah Bowden is fearless as Cassie, while Samantha Marisol Gershman shines as vocal powerhouse Diana. Sean Ewing’s solid baritone voice cuts through the spacious Hobby Center with ease, while Leeds Hill’s acting as Greg comes across as unvarnished and honest.”

Bowden is currently in Houston, where she’s reprising the role of “Cassie” for Theatre Under the Stars’ 51st season opener. Bowden was kind enough to chat with Broadway World Houston via email to tell us the differences between playing Cassie in English and German, explain why Michael Bennett‘s musical still resonates with audiences, and share a little insight into the auditioning process.”
