The shimmering lights of Broadway have long symbolized success in show business. Each year, top tier Broadway shows attract millions of people from all over the world. But the history of Broadway isn’t all glitz and glamour. In fact, Times Square used to be one of the most dangerous areas in New York City, riddled with violent crime, mob activity, and prostitution. Through the decades, Broadway has undergone multiple transformations, not only on its streets, but also in the types of performances that have taken place within its theaters. As our society changes, Broadway continues to change with it, forever creating new and exciting ways to tell the greatest stories. Highlighting some of Broadway’s most groundbreaking shows, including A Chorus Line, Cats, Rent, and Hamilton, ON BROADWAY is the perfect film for theater lovers everywhere. A star-studded documentary featuring interviews with Hugh Jackman, Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, and more, ON BROADWAY is a cinematic love letter to the theater. — G.S.
