It would have been more impactful if one of the effeminate male dancers (oxymoron?) had shocked everyone on the line by coming out as a heterosexual or if Audrey Landers had sung about her breasts being real. What a bummer! As someone else said before me, it would have been so cool if this movie had given us more insight into each of the characters and shown us what we've had to imagine when watching the stage play. What is probably the biggest problem is the casting.
A Chorus Line" is now in its 11th year on stages all over the world; its story is by now well-known. A choreographer is casting eight dancers for a new musical he hopes to stage, and during one long and truthful day he auditions dozens of dancers before he makes his final selection. Richard Attenborough's film treatment of this story sticks to the outlines of the stage version, by and large, although he leaves the stage to fill in the details of the choreographer's old romance, and he leaves out some of the original songs to make room for some new ones. Unlike the play, the movie opens up by going offstage for flashbacks to their affair, but the flashbacks are notable mostly for the way they focus on the theatrical lives of this couple - the way their private lives seem valid only to the degree that they reflect acceptance from the audience.
