Choreography drifts from the original over time unless dancers pass the actual moves from one generation to the other. This is why aged ballet teachers with canes are so popular a trope in dance movies.

Someone who was about 20 in 1975 "must be all pruney and broken"? Wow, do you actually know anyone that age? I realize that seems antique from the vantage point of one's early 20s, but jesus, dancers tend to age very well indeed. Rita Moreno is what, 75, and still looks fantastic.

"A CHORUS LINE is the longest-running American musical in Broadway history"

I guess this is going with the hair-splitting argument that "Phantom of the Opera" is a British show, I suppose?

The fact that I know the difference proves my faggery knows no bounds.

Make sure to always follow A CHORUS LINE, with a comma.
