Synopsis

Every Little Step explores the incredible journey of ‘A Chorus Line,’ from ambitious idea to international phenomenon. Through 15 years of continuous performances from the 70’s to 90’s and a revival beginning in 2006, ‘A Chorus Line’ has touched generations around the world with stories so poignant; they could only have come from truth. The film 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. The film goes behind the scenes with exclusive interviews and footage of the revival’s audition process, revealing the dramatic journey of the performers, and unfolding the story of life imitating art. The filmmakers, James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo, were granted unprecedented access. Interviews, then and now, with the creative minds who shaped ‘A Chorus Line’ and the cast who realized it provide fascinating insights and reveal the truths behind the genesis of the show. The original musical arose at a volatile time--in the wake of Vietnam and Watergate, as the hippy era declined, as movements in civil rights, women’s rights, and gay rights were gaining voices across the world, and as the Cold War continued without end in sight. As Every Little Step investigates the legacy of ‘A Chorus Line,’ it also looks at our current society, which has so enthusiastically received the revival. There are certain similarities to the era of the original. Perhaps these factors explain ‘A Chorus Line’s’ continuing popularity, a desire for the chorus of clamoring voices to be heard.
