A chorus line LIES.

Visiting the NYTimes Theatre Section today, I caught this interesting ad:



Really? A Chorus Line is the best musical EVER? Isn't that kind of pushing it?

Maybe "best" is Latin for "most overrated". Yo, where's my latin scholars at?

Nope, it is not. It should be though, especially when Wicked is referred to as the best musical ever.
Well you didn't let them finish. The statement is clearly true if the whole sentence is "The Best Musical Ever That Involves 17 Dancers and A Sadomasochist Director and Legwarmers." This is admittedly a slightly narrower field, but I think A Chorus Line wins it.
Aw I love A Chorus Line! But is there really any show that is the 'best?' I think not.
It's easy to tell which show is the "best": it's the ones that charge the most money!
