A Cho­rus Line

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW - SC

eaves­drop­ping on a sav­age au­di­tion (17 dancers, eight parts, one sadis­tic direc­tor), michael Ben­nett’s mu­si­cal is a sad, gritty ex­posé of Broad­way’s mer­ci­less grind. richard At­ten­bor­ough’s up­beat screen adap­ta­tion misses the point. An ex­cru­ci­at­ingly kitsch en­durance, set to a ghastly ’80s Ceefax score.
