Michael Bennett always thought of his groundbreaking 1974 musical A Chorus Line as a documentary. Now, thanks to filmmakers James D. Stern and Adam Del Deo, it is. The movie, Every Little Step, which opens Friday at the Charles Theatre, takes the idea that made A Chorus Line such a smash success and goes one kick combination further. For A Chorus Line, Bennett compiled hundreds of hours of interviews with the "theater gypsies" of the era, aspiring dancers competing for tiny roles in big-budget productions.

SYDNEY, Australia - Michael Bennett has been an amateur boxer for two years. He spent seven years in prison, doing time for armed robbery. Dragged down by charges of brutality and bogus officiating, boxing wants to rehabilitate its image at the Olympics. The sport couldn't ask for a better symbol of rebirth than Bennett, a 29-year-old from Chicago who overcame a stupid choice to offer the heavyweight division the prospect of a marvelous gold-medal bout. In one corner is Felix Savon, the Cuban who owned the division in Barcelona and Atlanta.
