Program Notes

A Chorus Line is a musical with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante. Centered on seventeen Broadway dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, the musical is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during an audition for a musical. A Chorus Line provides a glimpse into the personalities of the performers and the choreographer as they describe the events that have shaped their lives and their decisions to become dancers.

Nothing is a song from the musical A Chorus Line. It is sung by the Hispanic character Diana. City Beat explains "Diana Morales...talks about a teacher who berated her". All About Theatre talks about "Diana's recollections of a horrible high school acting class". The Independent describes it as "an account of her humiliations at the hands of a high-school Method Acting teacher". She sings of feeling "nothing" at the news of the teacher's death.
