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!"

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
