  • The promotion of the musical that will open Antonio Banderas' new theatre project is well under way, even at a Mallorca regatta

Preparations for the upcoming production of A Chorus Line at the Soho Caixabank Theatre in Malaga are picking up speed.

The musical, to be launched by actor Antonio Banderas as the opening show in his new theatre project, opens on 18 October in Malaga but is already being promoted around the country.

The name SohoCaixabank has also been given to the Malaga actor's yacht participating in the Copa del Rey regatta taking place in Palma de Mallorca.

After two and a half months in Malaga, the show will begin its tour, starting with a stint at the Teatro Arriaga in Bilbao between 6 and 16 February. Barcelona will also be included in the tour.

Antonio Banderas co-directs the show, to be performed in Spanish but maintaining some of the original song lyrics in English, with American actress and choreographer Bayork Lee (who performed in the original show in New York in 1975). The actor has said that anyone who wants to see him on stage will have to go to the Malaga theatre as he will move on to new acting commitments next year.

While the show will not officially be launched until 19 September, Banderas has said that tickets will be on sale at prices ranging between 18 and 70 euros.
