The Tony Award winning lyricist of A Chorus Line, Edward Kleban, was hell-bent on writing both the words and music for a Broadway show, a goal unrealised in 1987 when he died of cancer at the age of 48. Only posthumously would Ed’s songs garner the acclaim they always deserved, in the biographical musical A Class Act. A Class Act dramatises Ed’s often hilarious, ultimately heartbreaking journey. An ensemble cast inhabit the colourful gallery of friends and loved ones in Ed’s life, including the legendarily acerbic Lehman Engle, the relentlessly peppy Marvin Hamlisch, and Über-creative Michael Bennett. Fourteen years after his death, one of the theater’s unsung champions finally got the recognition he always deserved in this vibrant musical about musicals.


A CLASS ACT was originally produced by Manhattan Theatre Club and previously developed by Musical Theatre

An amateur production by arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe.
