Tickets for the opening night of A Chorus Line at the Teatro del Soho Caixabank in Malaga sold out within hours of going on sale at midnight on Tuesday.
The show, which stars the theatre's patron Antonio Banderas, will run from 27 November until 19 January with performances every day except for Monday and Tuesday.
Queues formed on Tuesday morning at both the Soho theatre and El Corte Inglés with fans of the Malaga-born actor and theatre enthusiasts keen to get their hands on tickets after 6,000 sold online during the pre-sale period.
Those who waited all shared the same motivation: "I'm here because you have to support this project and thank Antonio Banderas for supporting Malaga," said Francisco Márquez, ready to take home four tickets for his family.
"You have to look out for him," said Lourdes Sánchez, "excited" to see the fruit of the renovation of the old Alameda theatre.
"It will give life to this street, this is going to be a 'boom' for the city," added Manolo Afkir.
Originally created, choreographed and directed by Michael Bennett, A Chorus Line won nine Tony Awards and a Pulitzer. Its release in 1975 was seen as a landmark moment for theatre, since it was largely based on the real experiences of its actors.
In this revival of the Broadway production, Banderas will be assisted in his co-director's role by the legendary Baayork Lee, who played Connie Wong in the Broadway original, and has directed more than 35 productions of the musical across the globe. A Chorus Line will have a cast of 26 actors, and a live orchestra conducted by Arturo Díez Boscovich.
The cost of tickets vary between 18 and 140 euros and they can be purchased online.
