Music and Lyrics by Edward Kleban
Book by Linda Kline and Lonny Price

He was one singular sensation. Twelve years after Edward Kleban won a Tony Award for his lyrics in A Chorus Line, his friends gather for a memorial service at the Shubert Theatre. As they reminisce about shared performances, jobs, and workshops, Ed joins them on stage to relive the struggles, triumphs, and important moments of his life. Sweet, funny, and at times poignant, A Class Act features songs written by Ed himself.

Content Transparency: Guests are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the shows we offer to make informed decisions before purchasing tickets.


This funny, moving and inspiring musical is a celebration of the creative spirit. Garden Theatre hopes the inclusion of this piece will honor the many theatre artists who have kept us entertained, distracted and connected from their living rooms during these trying times.”
