BW has another musical theatre sensation on its hands as A CHORUS LINE has played to packed houses at the Kleist Center for Performing Arts. The Plain Dealer raves, "You'd be hard-pressed to see a better rendition [of A CHORUS LINE] anywhere." In a second article, the PD's Andrea Simakis also recounts the Tony winner's master class that prepped the BW student performers for greatness.

A review on LandOfCleve.net describes BW's production as "a chance to experience a production that is so faithful to the original version and features such phenomenal talent both onstage and behind the scenes that you can truly say you witnessed another "Singular Sensation!"

Pepin previewed the show for ideaStream audiences, appearing with WCLV morning show host Jacqueline Gerber.
