About the Show

"Adore Us! Line" - Conceived & Written by Robert John Ford


"Adore Us! Line" is a song-by-song parody of the landmark Broadway musical "A Chorus Line" in which each of the 24+ Democratic presidential candidates audition for the Iowa voters prior to the 2020 caucuses.  A hilarious and at times poignant look at the candidates as they are compelled to move beyond their standard stump speeches and typical song and dance routines to examine their own lives, dreams, motivations, flaws, and strengths.  Who will be the "one singular sensation" in the end?  Follow on Twitter at @AdoreUsLine.

“A Chorus Line” - Original Music by Marvin Hamlisch; Original Book by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante; Original Lyrics by Edward Kleban.

Original script published and distributed by Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc.  Stage rights represented by Tams-Witmark: A Concord Theatricals Company.
