Applicants of various backgrounds audition for a spot on Broadway
16 June 2005 | by Magman1See all my reviews

Singers and dancers from various parts of the country and with various backgrounds head to Broadway to audition for a spot in a show. Focusing on four dancers ranging from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, the film takes them through the whole process of trying out. While the acting isn't all that great, the dancing and music is top notch. Only one actor is recognizable; Lonnie Price,(Niel Kellerman from "Dirty Dancing") plays the role of an NYU student. "Headin For Broadway" also fairly illustrates the audition process, perhaps better than "A Chorus Line". While it is very rare film to find, out of print on VHS and not available on DVD, it is an enjoyable and entertaining movie. If you like good musicals and dance numbers, this is for you.
