Storyline

When he started as a comedy writer for the "Late Show with David Letterman," Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while gathering material for a segment on the show, Steve stumbled onto a few vintage record albums that would change his life forever. Bizarre cast recordings - marked "internal use only" - revealed full-throated Broadway-style musical shows about some of the most recognizable corporations in America: General Electric, McDonald's, Ford, DuPont, Xerox. Steve didn't know much about musical theater, but these recordings delighted him in a way that nothing ever had. While tracking down rare albums, unseen footage, composers and performers, Steve forms unlikely friendships and discovers that this discarded musical genre starring tractors and bathtubs was bigger than Broadway.

Trivia

During the "My Bathroom" scene, the filming split that makes the actress look like she's singing to her mirror reflection (and vice versa) can be seen in the black leg of the large shelving unit to her left, as the left side of it is wobbling up and down slightly. See more »

Can't stop smiling

What a blast it was watching "Bathtubs over Broadway". I seriously can't remember the last time I laughed so much while watching a DOCUMENTARY! What a joyous celebration of one man's journey to unearth and bring to life an entire genre and group of forgotten artists. This is a "can't miss."
