Consensus: Fascinating and insightful, Every Little Step is a thoroughly engrossing behind the scenes look at Broadway performers.

Jonathan F. Richards

It's all up there on the screen in this impassioned, exhilarating documentary. They want to dance for you. It's what they did for love.

Every Little Step never rises above being a very good showbiz documentary. But it's an engaging tribute to a groundbreaking musical.

Every Little Step, like A Chorus Line itself, should prove catnip for any self-respecting, self-flagellating actor-dancer.

I was thrilled and moved by Every Little Step, despite the abundance of bad dancing pouring out of reality television these days, because it's about the real thing, and offers marvellous insights into of the process of creating a Broadway hit.

Every Little Step is a terrific documentary history lesson about how Michael Bennett rounded up a bunch of New York singing, acting dancers, interviewed them and found out what they 'did for love,' back in January of 1974.

The documentary, edited down from some 400 hours, is packed with crowd-pleasing moments.

A riveting documentary from James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo.

You can't judge A Chorus Line by its film version; it's one of the lousiest movie musicals ever. But you can assess the stage original's influence by the wonderful new documentary Every Little Step.

Like the dancers themselves, this documentary has heart.
