On Broadway

Metropole Film Board, Storyville Films

DVD - 2021

As live performances on Broadway start up again after an unprecedented absence of eighteen months, an all-star cast tells the inside story of the last time Broadway theater came back from the brink. On Broadway shows how this revival helped save New York City, thanks to innovative work, new attention to inclusion, and the sometimes uneasy balance between art and commerce. Legends of the stage and screen, including Hugh Jackman, Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, August Wilson, James Corden, Alec ...Baldwin, John Lithgow, Viola Davis, and Ian McKellen, take us behind the scenes of Broadway₂s most groundbreaking and beloved shows, from A Chorus Line to Hamilton. Archival clips of iconic performances by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patti Lupone, Bernadette Peters, James Earl Jones, and Mandy Patinkin lead the way in a hurly-burly ride through the main street of American show business.
