3.0 out of 5 stars Well done, but very little new information, January 3, 2010
This review is from: Every Little Step (DVD)
As someone who has taught A Chorus Line and read several books or accounts about it's inception, this DVD was quite disappointing. They relied heavily on telling the story of the inception of the original A Chorus Line, which I would argue is fairly well known (at least through theatre circles anyway). Several people I know saw it in the theatres and said it was SO great, truly one of the best documentaries of the year, yet I thought it _dragged_. They left out how several key characters were cast (Morales anyone?) and there were no extras on the DVD that examined the middling success of this revival or updates from the cast of the current or previous incarnations. It was fun to see Tyce Diorio, now famous for his "cancer dance" on SYTYCD to be so blantantly egocentric to the point where he lost the part, but that was about the only thing I found exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revealing and thought provoking in the best way, January 3, 2010
On the Wicked scale of Elphaba verses Galinda, I've always fallen on the Elphaba side. I love Idina and loved her album and saw her in concert pre-baby. However, I picked up this autobiography and found Kristin to be wonderfully revealing and yet endearing at the same time. Chronicling her journey from small town Oklahoma girl to major celebrity in a not totally chronological fashion, she answered all my questions about how she handles fame, love, being a performer and her faith. By the title you can tell she doesn't purport to be perfect, but more than that she puts her faith and family first in a way that seems totally authentic and is not at all off-putting. Great job, Kristin! Fantastic, quick read with a lot of juicy stuff for your average Broadway-lover like me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for a few rounds, January 3, 2010
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
For Simpsons fanatics like my husband and I, this game was fun, at times challenging, and motivating for a few rounds. The only problem is with the actual "scene it" part of the game. Once you've played, maybe, 3 times, the questions start to repeat and repeat frequently.
