A (Habeas) Chorus Line was formed in 1992 for what we thought was a one-time engagement for the Detroit chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Since then we have performed at venues throughout Michigan and around the country.
While the prospect of lawyers singing may strike some as incongruous (good lawyer word), AHCL has proven to audiences that satire is not necessarily what closes on Saturday night. From local issues to national and international events, from judges to lawyers to politicians to celebrities, AHCL is an equal-opportunity lampooner.
Our material includes parodies of existing songs as well as original numbers. We parody lots of show tunes and pop numbers.
We can tailor our material for our audience. While we have played for many bar associations and lawyer groups, we also frequently play for non-lawyer audiences. We've played for metal finishers and dentists, chambers of commerce and synagogues, medical charity events and Masonic associations. You certainly don't have to be a lawyer to "get it."
