The dancing would have been better if you could actually see it.
But one thing that bugs me is why they even bothered to include "Hello 12, Hello 13, Hello Love" only to cut it down to a few bars so it leads into "Surprise, Surprise." That couldn't possibly have been the plan all along: to pay for the song and barely use it.
What makes it worse is that Michael Bennett was actually offered the chance to do it his way, but he squandered it.
On the other hand, they didn't throw out all the gay content, which was a big deal in 1985.
And since you mentioned Bob Fosse, All That Jazz managed to cover the same ground in five minutes with just as many quick cuts, but his cuts are better-timed and the dancing is better.
P.S. To this day, I have never been asked about my life story at an audition.
