According to press notes, “The first webseries of its kind, ‘Diary of a Chorus Girl’ documents the making of Broadway’s Catch Me If You Can from its first rehearsal to opening night through the eyes of a real-life chorus girl in her Broadway debut, Alex Ellis. From grueling dance rehearsals in 6-inch heels, to glamorous photo shoots, to balancing a personal life, Alex Ellis takes viewers on a theatrical journey showing what it really takes to make it on the Great White Way.”
Catch Me If You Can is currently in previews at the Neil Simon Theatre. To watch the third episode of “Diary of a Chorus Girl,” look below:
