Commentaires longs: The Broadway revival cost $8 million to finance and made back its investment in 19 weeks. The production was directed by Bob Avian, with the choreography reconstructed by Baayork Lee, who had played Connie Wong in the original Broadway production. The opening night cast included Paul McGill, Michael Berresse, Charlotte d'Amboise, Mara Davi, James T. Lane, Heather Parcells, Alisan Porter, Jason Tam, Jessica Lee Goldyn and Chryssie Whitehead.
On April 15, 2008 Mario Lopez joined the cast as the replacement for Zach.
The production received two Tony Award nominations in 2007 for Featured Role (Charlotte d'Amboise) and Revival (Musical).
The original contract for A Chorus Line provided for sharing the revenue from the show with the directors and dancers that had attended the original workshop sessions. However, the contract did not specify revenue when the musical was revived in 2006. In February 2008, an agreement was reached with the dancers and Michael Bennett's estate.
Presse : BEN BRANTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says “Since “A Chorus Line” left Broadway only 16 years ago, to have it return more or less exactly as it was makes it feel like a vintage car that has been taken out of the garage, polished up and sent on the road once again. Now isn’t one of the points of “A Chorus Line” that musicals are not machines?” and "You can still sense the urgency that once propelled “A Chorus Line” in some of the ensemble pieces. But in providing us with an archivally and anatomically correct reproduction of a landmark show, its creators neglected to restore its central nervous system and, most important, its throbbing heart." / JOE DZIEMIANOWICZ of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says "The musical doesn't pack the one-two wallop of innovation and discovery it once did. How could it? But for its 2 hours and 10 minutes, it is still addictively entertaining." & "As long as "A Chorus Line" is kicking on Broadway, audiences have somewhere exciting to go." / CLIVE BARNES of THE NEW YORK POST says "A good reproduction of a great original. But if you've seen it before, you needn't run to see it again." / MICHAEL SOMMERS of STAR-LEDGER says "But plenty of younger people probably have never witnessed "A Chorus Line." They're fortunate -- and so are the rest of us -- that the production is a faithful and altogether loving re-creation of the late Michael Bennett's masterpiece. Welcome back, you beautiful thing." / LINDA WINER of NEWSDAY says "The treatment of every step-kick as holy scripture brings the faint whiff of mothballs to memory lane." / ROBERT FELDBERG of the RECORD says "The creators of the revival don't want you to forget the original; they'd like you to relive it...The result of all this, thankfully, is not a museum piece, but a vibrant re-creation. Whatever ghosts it bears, and whatever its flaws, it's a high-spirited, entertaining show that honors its predecessor." / JACQUES LE SOURD of JOURNAL NEWS says "Unfortunately, what's missing is charisma. There isn't a drop of it on the stage." / DAVID ROONEY of VARIETY says "While everybody works hard, no one quite dazzles. That seems dictated not by any lack of talent but by the fundamental limitations of the production's approach. Fitting into the established contours of existing performances rarely generates the same sparks as creating them from scratch. The actors onstage feel like topnotch replacements rather than originators. It's the sense of duplication -- albeit lovingly executed -- that keeps the revival from soaring."

Commentaires longs: A darker version of the musical. Orchestrations were darkened tonally. The scenic designs used ancient hewn rock entwined with roots and vines. The costumes incorporated leather and fur. The choreography is more earthy. The cast was racially diverse.
