1 Hr. 25 Min.
No Rating
2019

As theatergoers prepare for the return of Broadway 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.

"This smart and spirited film reminds us that there's still nothing in American entertainment like the Broadway ritual of hundreds of live, superbly talented performers playing to thousands of live, rapt theatergoers six nights a week."
- Wall Street Journal
"On Broadway sure knows how to work a theater-lover's heart."
- New York Times
"Despite all the glitz and money talk, what the film unequivocally conveys is the elemental reason we are drawn to the theater in the first place."
- Christian Science Monitor
