During rehearsals for Mike Cost'as I CAN DO THAT number it was Michael (Mark) Blevins' idea to have Chuck McGowan pull someone from the link to join in his routine.

Blevins hoped they would pick him since it was his idea - but choreographer Jeffrey Hornaday took Blevins' idea but choose dancer Gregg Burge for the bit. Sorry, Blev!
Rewind Archive
During preproduction, people from the movie came to "A Chorus Line" on Broadway with camaras with the intent on taking pictures of the final costumes. They offered designer, Theoni Aldredge full on screen credit, but she refused it, as a loyalty to the original show.
