On the final night of Staples Players’ production of “A Chorus Line” in March, Marvin Hamlisch’s widow came onstage.
Terre Blair Hamlisch thanked the high school troupe for their magnificent staging of her husband’s show. Then she made a surprise announcement: She invited Players to perform at a benefit concert, celebrating his life and work.
The event is 8 p.m. Monday, June 3 — the day after what would have been the legendary composer’s 69th birthday.
Players are in good company. The all-star cast includes Joel Grey, Robert Klein and Bernadette Peters.
But the Staples students won’t be the only area representatives at the Hudson Theatre. Also appearing: Weston’s Lucie Arnaz, and former Westporter Michael Douglas.
