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.

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...

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
2 December 2004 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

Rick McKay's film is amazing. Instead of following a predetermined script and asking the same old questions to the legends who were luckily still with us at the time they were interviewed, Rick asked the kind of open-ended questions that let us get to know about the performers and their experiences in a far more comprehensive way. I wished the film would never end, and it still feels like it needs an extra hour or two. The bonus features including the commentary track take several hours to get through and are all top notch. If you felt the recent PBS documentary left a lot to be desired - ESPECIALLY in regards to regular plays - then THIS is the film for you!
