Nikolai Foster's non-replica production of A Chorus Line, which will play a U.K.-wide tour next year, has announced its full cast.

Originally staged at Curve Leicester in 2021, the production will first return to the Curve June 28–July 13, followed by a summer run at Sadler’s Wells in London July 31–August 25.

The tour will subsequently visit The Lowry in Salford, Norwich Theatre Royal, The Marlowe in Canterbury, the Birmingham Hippodrome, the New Theatre in Cardiff, the Edinburgh Festival Theatre, and the Wycombe Swan.

Reprising their roles from the original 2021 production are Adam Cooper (Billy Elliot, Swan Lake) as Zach and Carly Mercedes Dyer (Anything Goes, West Side Story) as Cassie. 

They will be joined by Jocasta Almgill as Diana Morales, Lydia Bannister as Bebe Benzenheimer, Bradley Delarosbel as Gregory Gardner, Archie Durrant as Mark Anthony, Joshua Lay as Al Deluca, Katie Lee as Kristine Urich, Mireia Mambo as Richie Walters, Kanako Nakano as Judy Turner, Manuel Pacific as Paul San Marco, Ashley-Jordon Packer as Larry, Kate Parr as Maggie Winslow, Rachel Jayne Picar as Connie Wong, Redmand Rance as Mike Costa, Chloe Saunders as Val Clarke, Toby Seddon as Bobby Mills, Amy Thornton as Shelia Bryant, and Louie Wood as Don Kerr.

The cast is completed by ensemble members Yuki Abe, Fin Adams, Katrina Dix, Imogen Rose Hart, Laura Hills, Josh Kiernan, and Joshua Steel.

In addition to Foster, the production is choreographed by Ellen Kane (Matilda, Legally Blonde). Originally directed and choreographed by Michael Bennett, the majority of A Chorus Line productions around the world feature Bennett's original staging, giving this non-replica production a fresh perspective rarely seen for the mega-hit musical.

This production also features set design by Grace Smart, costume design by Edd Lindley, lighting design by Howard Hudson, and sound design by Tom Marshall. The orchestra will be supported by music licensing company PPL.

The Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A Chorus Line began performances on Broadway at the Sam S. Shubert Theatre July 25, 1975, before officially opening October 19, 1975. When it closed 15 years later on April 28, 1990, it was the longest-running show in Broadway history, having played 6,137 performances. The production won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, nine Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Score, and Book), and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award.

Originally conceived, choreographed, and directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line features a book by James Kirkwood and Nicholas Dante, music by Marvin Hamlisch, and lyrics by Edward Kleban.
