In the basement quick change room of a Broadway theater in the mid 1980s, the chorus girls are at war with their dressers. Will the new dresser, with her own sad past and uncertain future, be able to navigate this minefield?

 

According to the Chorus is a funny, nostalgic behind-the-scenes look at a pivotal period in the history of Broadway where women’s issues and the AIDS crisis play out through the everyday lives of Equity performers and union dressers.

With a cast of twelve and a dog, this is ensemble work in the spirit of Balm in Gilead and Hot L Baltimore.
