Saying the story was set at a time when dancers were ''at the bottom of the pile,'' Harvey says one of the great legacies of A Chorus Line is what it did for so many dancers. ''I don't know how many thousands and thousands of dancers have had jobs because of A Chorus Line,'' he says. Some of the language has been changed to remove '70s pop culture references, but the songs — ''One,'' ''I Hope I Get It,'' ''What I Did for Love'' — remain. Mitzi Hamilton, the model for the Val character in the original Michael Bennett production and who also performed in that role in London and on Broadway, is directing and choreographing. (Harvey got his New Jersey role after auditioning for her there.)
