A Chorus Line Documentary, Every Little Step, Streams for Free This Week

For more than three decades, there's been one "singular sensation"... A Chorus Line, the groundbreaking musical that was inspired by the emotional and touching lives of dancers in their audition process.

The story now comes full circle as a documentary that offers a revealing, unprecedented look at the auditions for the 2006 Broadway revival of the classic musical.

Here's how to watch the full documentary for free:

 

 

The award-winning film showcases thousands of hopeful performers who audition for the 2006 Broadway revival of the musical.

Some of their stories are interwoven with recollections of members of the original cast, including Donna McKechnie and Baayork Lee.

The film is available to stream until the end of the month through our list of free streaming musicals and plays.

"Every Little Step" uses the rare tapes of Bennett's original conversations with dancers to dive into the history of the musical. The tapes were given to the film directors by John Breglio, which produced the 2006 revival. Bennett had told Breglio that a documentary should be made about A Chorus Line when a Broadway revival was to happen.

Creative teams that are featured include composer Marvin Hamlisch and Bob Avian, who both co-choreographed the original production in 1975 and directed the recent Broadway revival.

The tapes and interviews in Every Little Step offer audiences a new glimpse into the development of the musical - the film explains how Bennett completely changed the ending of the show after getting very poor reactions from test audiences. The new ending earned unanimous praise and is part of the final version of the show today.

The film originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2008 and went into theatrical release the following month.
