I would highly recommend this documentary for anyone interested in
Broadway generally, and musicals specifically. It documents the entire
2003-04 Broadway season. It focuses primarily on four musicals: Avenue
Q, Wicked, Caroline or Change, and Taboo. The unrestricted access to
the musical process from casting to rehearsals to previews all through
to the Tony Awards was amazing.
At our screening, we were surprised by the appearance of Dori Berinstein (writer/director/producer) and Jeff Marx (composer/lyricist of "Avenue Q"), for a Q & A. Dori revealed that they had over 400 hours of video, from which to produce this final product.
I'm looking forward to the release of the DVD which we were promised would include footage that didn't make it into the movie.
