For over three decades, there's been one singular sensation: A Chorus Line, the groundbreaking hit musical inspired by the emotional lives of dancers during the audition process. Now the story comes full circle as a new documentary offers a revealing, unprecedented look at the auditions for the Broadway revival of the perennial classic, including interview footage with Bob Avian, Michael Bennett, Charlotte d'Amboise, Marvin Hamlisch and Donna McKechnie to name a few. The music, the moves and the real-life drama - they're all here in a documentary that brings you closer to the footlights than you ever thought possible.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: You can't judge A Chorus Line by its film version; it's one of the lousiest movie musicals ever. But you can assess the stage original's influence by the wonderful new documentary Every Little Step.
Fresh: Every Little Step is a feat of editing and sound design.
Fresh: Every Little Step is a terrific documentary history lesson about how Michael Bennett rounded up a bunch of New York singing, acting dancers, interviewed them and found out what they 'did for love,' back in January of 1974.
Fresh: They want the recognition we all want, and the film persuades you that almost every one of them deserves it.
This is a great documentary! It really takes you through a Broadway Audtion and along the way explains the backround of the fabled show,'A Chorus Line"
This is the movie that the movie of A Chorus Line SHOULD have beeen!
Make no mistake. This is a documentary about the auditions for the 2007 revival of A Chorus Line. And yet, this has more emotion, joy, thrills, suspense, dance, tears, and happiness than the movie ever did.
GET THIS MOVIE!
If you are a fan of the show, Every Little Step will help you relive the joys of the stage production.
If you are an aspiring dancer or theatre person, the movie is a love letter to you telling you what it takes to perservere and succeed.
You are right there at all the phases of the auditions, watching the behind-the-scenes activities of the production team as they look to recreate the magic of the original production.
There are tons of clips of the original cast members back in 1975, audio tapes of the first workshop with Michael Bennet, contemporary interviews with cast members such as Donna McKechnie, and the energetic Baayork Lee who re-creates the original choreography.
NOTE TO HOLLYWOOD: This is how to film dance. Feet, bodies, arms--all working together to make you feel the movement on stage.
Did I mention to GET THIS MOVIE? Do it! Do it, now! And then give yourself some time to sit and absorb yourself in the new stories of "what we did for love." (And bring a box of tissues.)
