Storyline

In their own words, and not a moment too soon - 'Broadway' tells the stories of our theatrical legends, how they came to New York, and how they created this legendary century in American theatre. This may be the last chance that these stories may be documented, for unlike film and television, live theatre exists only in the memories of those who were there watching, or more importantly, creating this magic. 'Broadway' tells the stories of these legendary performers, composers and writers while illustrating their tales with amazing, rare, archival performance footage and these legends' own home movies and photos.

Trivia

Elizabeth Ashley's interview was originally scheduled to take only a half hour at Rick McKay's New York apartment. She and McKay became so deeply embedded in conversation, it actually took four hours. Ashley chain-smoked almost the whole time. See more »

Quotes

Elaine Stritch: I think people are so STUPID when they say, "Oh, we shouldn't revive these musicals, we shouldn't revive that show." My God! There's a whole new generation in the world! They should see 'Kiss Me, Kate.' It's great theater! They should see 'Guys and Dolls.' One of the best musicals ever written. They should see 'Annie Get Your Gun.' It's a ball. This is, you know, Beethoven, this is Bach, this is, uh, somethin'! Fer chrissake...

Deserves a 10!!!
6 January 2004 | by (Lawrence Kansas) – See all my reviews

I don't know if it is possible to comment again about this movie, but I must try! I just noticed that some people voted "1" or "2" for this wonderful work about 100 Broadway legends telling their stories. I can only postulate: 1) The voters have the wrong film, they are thinking of something else with the word "Broadway" in it, or 2) They thought "1" was the best vote that could be given.

This excellent, exquisite movie deserves a "10"!!!!!

The subject matter is fascinating, the actors candid and captivating, and the editing puts it all together in a most enjoyable way. What would seem a daunting task turns out beautifully in the hands of accomplished interviewer and filmmaker Rick Mckay.

10! 10! 10!
