Movie Summary

Director:
James D. Stern , Adam Del Deo
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG-13
Every Little Step is a 2008 American documentary film that chronicles the casting process of the Broadway revival of the hit musical A Chorus Line. Much similar to the plot of the musical, the film intercuts stories of some of the dancers as they struggle to make a living and vie for their chance to be on Broadway. Some members of the original 1975 production are featured, including Donna McKechnie, Baayork Lee, composer Marvin Hamlisch, and choreographer Bob Avian. When 3,000 dancers arrive to the open audition, the director must find a unique spark in each of the dancers that will help tell the story. Many of these intimate moments, both joyous and heartbreaking, are captured in the film. Featuring the popular music from the show as the soundtrack, the film capitalizes on the nostalgia surrounding the popular musical. Directed by James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo, Every Little Step generally received a positive critical reception upon its release.
