  • Summary: Every Little Step explores the incredible journey of A Chorus Line from ambitious idea to international phenomenon. It compares and contrasts the original musical with the current revival. It investigates the societies in which they’ve debuted, and why the themes are so timeless and universal. Finally, it goes behind the scenes with exclusive interviews and footage of the revival’s audition process, revealing the dramatic journey of the performers, and unfolding a story of life imitating art.

  1. 100
    Sensational documentary.
  2. A movie as layered and enthralling as its subject.
  3. It's a big ice cream sundae, this one -- not great documentary filmmaking but tasty all the way.
  4. 75
    In Every Little Step, the performers bleed, sweat, cry theater - without having to tell us.
  5. 75
    A thrilling combination of documentary and musical dazzler.
  6. 70
    Modeling the movie after the show itself grows problematic near the end, when Stern and Del Deo, anticipating that climactic, gold-suited kick line, try to whip us into a frenzy on opening night.
  7. 38
    Every Little Step shows only this: It hurts to flunk an audition, and it's nice to get hired. Everything it has to say about Broadway was said better in Bob Fosse's movie "All That Jazz" -- in its opening five minutes.
