"Dance: 10; Looks: 3" from "A Chorus Line" by Hamlisch/Kleban (auditions)
"Mustang Sally" originally recorded by Wilson Pickett, performed by Vonda (montage of Elaine and audition guy)
"The Music and the Mirror" from "A Chorus Line," performed by Jane Krakowski
"What I Did for Love" from "A Chorus Line," performed by Vonda (closing montage)

Dame Edna Everage appears by arrangement with Barry Humphries.

From Mike Most (Visual FX Supervisor): That was our own beloved Bill D'Elia (Executive Producer) playing the producer (the rather distinguished looking gentleman sitting next to the director and doing his patented Bob Fosse homage with the mouth spray). The jury foreman was played by Mark Muehler, who is a regular background player and also an occasional stand-in.

Someone mentioned "The Understudy." This is actually a project of Bill D'Elia's, to be produced by David E. Kelley Productions. It was originally to be made as a pilot, but has gone through a few changes and with any luck will hopefully get made as a 2 hour movie/pilot.
