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 »

This movie delves into the audition process of the revival of A Chorus Line. Warning! You will now want to see the movie and have the songs rolling through your brain ad nauseam...

Who knew the audition process took that long! Some of them really screwed the pooch and lost the roles in the process.

An interesting look at a well loved and known Broadway play and movie.
