Storyline

Starting at midnight January 26, 1974, dancer and choreographer Michael Bennett held a twelve-hour taped get-together with twenty-two dancers talking about themselves, he not knowing exactly where it would lead. It would become the genesis for what has become one of the most influential Broadway musicals of all time, and a show which speaks to theatrical dancers' hearts: "A Chorus Line". In 2008, a Broadway revival of the show is being mounted, with many involved in the original production part of the creative team behind the revival. The issue for the revival's creative team is to make the show and the casting fresh, while respecting the original, where the characters, their stories and their related songs all came out of the 1974 dancers' stories, they who were cast in the original production. Although the names and the faces have changed from 1974, the dancers auditioning mirror many of the stories and issues faced by those original dancers. As such, they "really want this job" as ...

Trivia

Although this film is classified as a documentary, Charlotte d'Amboise, one of the stars of the revival of A Chorus Line, told Playbill Magazine that several scenes in the film, including the ones in which she and Jessica Lee Goldyn get phone calls informing them that they have been chosen for the cast, were staged - recreated for the documentary cameras. d'Amboise said that when they filmed her pretending to receive the news that she'd been cast, there was actually no one on the other end of the phone line with her.

Alternate Versions

The version being sold on iTunes appears to be edited for language. Several instances of the word "fuck" have been re-dubbed with the tamer "frick", and other instances have just been poorly edited out. Strangely though, not *all* instances of the word have been expunged, so it's curious why some have been removed and not others. The version on the DVD remains completely uncut. See more »

Misleading Movie
5 June 2009 | by callapjSee all my reviews

I share lor_'s dismay at the distortions and omissions in "Every Little Step". To ignore the contributions of James Kirkwood, Ed Kleban and all the actors in the original cast is appalling. McKechnie and Lee, the only two original cast members, have managed to turn "A Chorus Line" into a positive, but it took the other cast members years of negotiation and the threat of litigation to receive more than the pittance they received from their stories. As an aside, is any movie viewer so naive as to believe that Charlotte D'Amboise just happened to have the camera film her actual casting moment? We ain't that dumb. Disappointing on so many levels.
