In the course of just one performance this impressive group sings, acts and dances several big production numbers. You know, the stuff all Broadway chorus boys and girls do eight times a week. But this amazing ensemble also does three extended ballets - and they are strenuous. Breathtaking and inspiring as these dances (exquisitely choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon) are, the 27 people doing them are just as breathtaking and inspiring.
Congratulations to: Caitlin Abraham, Will Burton, Atilla Joey Csiki, Michael Cusumano, Taeler Cyrus, Ashley Dupre, Rebecca Eichenberger, Sara Esty, Laura Feig, Jennie Ford, Kurt Froman, Heather Lang, Dustin Layton, Nathan Madddem, Gia Mongell, Candy Olsen, Rebecca Riker, Adam Rogers, Sam Rogers, Shannon Rugani, Garen Scribner, Sam Strasfeld, Sarrah Strimel, Charlie Sutton, Allison Walsh, Scott Willis and Victor J. Wisehart.
