A Chorus Line original cast recording to be re-released with unheard songs

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the original 1975 Broadway cast recording of A Chorus Line is being re-released on 23rd October 2015.

The album will feature eight bonus tracks that didn't make the final cut of Marvin Hamlisch and Edward Kleban's famous score. 

In 2013 it was announced that the West End revival cast of A Chorus Line would release a new cast album featuring previously unheard material. However, after the musical announced its closure, the album was never made.

A Chorus Line features iconic numbers including 'I Hope I Get It', 'At the Ballet', 'The Music and the Mirror', 'One' and 'What I Did for Love'. The show opened on Broadway in 1975 before transferring to the West End in 1976 where it ran at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. 

The first London revival opened at the London Palladium in 2013 starring Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Diana, John Partridge as Zach, Scarlett Strallen as Cassie and Leigh Zimmerman who won an Olivier Award for her performance as Sheila,
