A “Chorus Line” Settlement [7:24 pm]

Those First in ‘Chorus Line’ Gain a Continuing Stake

The dancers and actors who participated in the 1974 recordings and workshops that were the foundation of “A Chorus Line” have been granted a financial interest in the current Broadway revival, according to a joint statement released on Friday by those artists and the beneficiaries of the estate of Michael Bennett, the musical’s creator and original director.

The arrangement brings to a close 16 months of negotiations between the artists and the estate, during which both sides debated the intentions behind a 33-year-old contract drawn up by Mr. Bennett.
