    A thrilling combination of documentary and musical dazzler. show more

    The film is as much about the creation of the original show back in 1975 and the genius of the late Michael Bennett, who masterminded it, as it is about the newer version. show more

    Do you need to have seen A Chorus Line to understand or enjoy Every Little Step? I think not. This companion piece to one of America's most beloved musicals is about human longings and shortfalls. show more

    Directors Adam Del Deo and James D. Stern focus primarily on the casting process for the 2006 revival, parading so many personalities past us that we don't really get to know anyone. Bypassing the original for the recreation? That ain't it, kid. show more

    The result is an insightful, exuberant, probing, long-winded and even exhausting look at what it takes for a performer to have a life in the theater. show more

    The result? A briskly self-aware, thoroughly stage-struck portrait of a theatrical portrait. show more

    An uncommonly tender and observant documentary on the phenomenon that is "A Chorus Line." show more

    It's a big ice cream sundae, this one -- not great documentary filmmaking but tasty all the way. show more

    A documentary about the world of Broadway musicals, focusing on the dance and celebrating The Chorus Line. Real drama depicted at times. Well done, and very moving (pun intended) at times. Joe six pack will be bored with it, however. Aficionados of the subject matter will love it.

    I find it a real shame this fine movie didn't get publicity so more would know about it. It needs to open in more theaters as well.

    This was a documentary all abou the casting of "A Chorus Line" on Broadway. It was good, but I wish they showed more of other aspects of how the production came about. They also didn't touch on all the characters of the show, only about half. I was in the show 4 times always playing the same role, so it's nothing I haven't experienced already. To people who are not familiar with the show may be pretty bored. But ACL fans such as myself know exactly what they're talking about.

    Having seen "A Chorus Line" six times, this documentary impressed me very much. It thoroughly does the Pulitzer-winning play justice. Bob, Moreno Valley, CA
