1h 22min | Documentary History      

For anyone who loves theater, this contemporary history of Broadway is a pure joy!     

As audiences prepare for the return of live theater after an unprecedented absence of 18 months, an all-star cast tells the inside story of the last time Broadway came back from the brink. On Broadway shows how this revival helped save New York City, thanks to innovative work, a new attention to inclusion, and the sometimes uneasy balance between art and commerce.     

Interviews with legends of the stage and screen, including Hugh Jackman, Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, August Wilson, James Corden, Alec Baldwin, John Lithgow, Viola Davis, and Ian McKellen take us behind the scenes of Broadway's most groundbreaking and beloved shows, from A Chorus Line to Hamilton.

Archival clips of iconic performances by Lin Manuel Miranda, Patti Lupone, Bernadette Peters, James Earl Jones and Mandy Patinkin punctuate this hurly-burly ride through the main street of American show business.

Now that New York City is facing an uncertain path forward in its recovery from a devastating pandemic, this documentary shows how Broadway led the way in the city's last great rebirth and provides a model of how it can come back again.
