For anyone who loves theater, this contemporary history of Broadway is a pure joy! Interviews with 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 Broadway's 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 punctuate this hurly-burly ride through the main street of American show business. This documentary from Academy Award®-nominated director Oren Jacoby and the producers of RBG shows how Broadway led the way in New York’s last great rebirth and provides a model of how it can come back again.
