Every Little Step
After raking in awards at several major film festivals, EVERY LITTLE STEP reaches movie audiences and Broadway fans alike. A film about a musical that is itself about the casting of a musical, the documentary takes fans inside the makings of A CHORUS LINE. Much of it focuses on the casting process for the musicals 2005 revival, though it also takes fans through the shows many incarnations and to its original inspiration. Back in 1974, choreographer Michael Bennett saw the potential for a spectacular show in the recorded late-night conversations of several stage performers. One year--and a lot of labor--later, A CHORUS LINE premiered to high acclaim, introducing the world to what would turn out to be a timeless work.

"A documentary that combines the history of A CHORUS LINE with a behind-the-scenes look at how the 2006 Broadway revival was cast, it's a can't-miss effort that knows how to please."
