A Chorus Line : No "cruel ending" - SHOW BUSINESS is "cruel"

No "cruel ending" - SHOW BUSINESS is "cruel"

For Christ's sake: this movie was about a "cattle call" for 8 positions in a chorus.

Show business is ruthless. As many a veteran performer has said: "If you can't take rejection, then you'd better go do something else."

What happened in this movie (still) happens on a daily basis in New York City.

"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"

Re: No "cruel ending" - SHOW BUSINESS is "cruel"

The major 'bottoming out' was the mere fact that hundreds showed up, only for the select 2-dozen to find out that only 8 of them were going to be hired.

Yeah, sometimes showbiz DOES suck
