I voted both. I don't think you can put one or the other on "A Chorus Line". Not even on singular characters.
Case in point: Sheila. Compare her in just one song, "At the Ballet". She starts off in a comedic diva style (Yes? You want me? He wants me) and then switches into a very dramatic area when Zach touches on her home life, which sparks her song. She switches back to comedy at points ("They're not THAT big""God, when it's over do I need a drink"), but ends in a rather dramatic scene ("I have two years left. Maybe four, if I get my eyes done", and her shocked, hurt final exit from the stage).

So...yeah.

yes, no, i agree i was just seeing if everyone else does with me.

i'm auditioning for this show in a week and a half and my mom was discouraging me from auditioning w/ a slightly comedic monologue bc there's "NO COMEDY in a chorus line" she said...."its just a bunch of people dancing and telling their stories..."

I'm like, you're kidding, right? it's a lot of comedy in there! as well as dramatic aspects. i just polled to confirm this lol

I figure I'm auditioning part of "At the Ballet" so its a dramatic acting sort of song, and I figured I would show off my comedic talents/facial expressions, etc. for my monologue

From the second Val says "I don't give a f*** about the Red Shoes" through the end of Dance: Ten, Looks: Three (Tits and Ass), it's comedy. For a lot of things it's comedy. I don't know where your mother is.

defffff both...from diana's song and paul's agony...def dramatic moments-- but "dance ten looks three" and "sing" make it incredibly comedic.
