Life of three Broadway Standbys
22 June 2012 | by director-76See all my reviews

What a charmer! As I watched this highly entertaining and fascinating documentary, I wondered why no film maker has covered this subject before.We see the stories of three Broadway Standbys.All three personalities take on a challenging profession with determination and loads of talent. This director knows how to tell a story. Everyone in the theater seemed enraptured.I,personally, would like to see all three of these Broadway standbys land a lead in their own Broadway show. THE STANDBYS should be shown to every casting director,producer,and director in the business. Those who dream of being an actor would benefit greatly from seeing this film also.
