Emotionally devastated by the death of his uncle, Boston carpenter Jack O'Toole (McIntyre) writes a play inspired by the man's wake. When nobody will produce the play, Jack quits his job to produce it himself, imagining that this play will give a new start to the strained relationship Jack has with his father. But the only stage Jack can afford is in the back room of a neighborhood pub. In this humble environment, Jack pulls together a theater company of sorts and brings his story to the stage, and in the process he brings together his family and friends and helps them move beyond their loss.Written by

Brilliant film about family, friends and dreams
Set in the Irish Catholic neighborhood in south Boston, on Broadway is a worthwhile film about family, friends and the courage to follow a dream - no matter what. I had the opportunity to see the film at the Phoenix film festival, where it was the Sundance Channel Audience Award Winner. I was moved by the relationships among the characters. The film is well acted and well cast. The soundtrack was perfect for the movie.
Dave McLaughlin, writer and director, was at the film festival. Not only is he very talented, but also a genuinely nice person.
For me, a movie where I can laugh and cry is a winner. On Broadway has it all. I hope this film gets wide release.
