Broadway: The Golden Age

Movie Summary

Director:
Rick McKay
Released:
2004
Rating:
Not Available
BROADWAY: THE GOLDEN AGE is an utterly entertaining and inspiring documentary that not only provides astonishing insights into the early days of Broadway, but also gives us compelling anecdotal portraits of the struggles and triumphs of over 100 legendary performers, composers and writers in the New York City of a bygone era, still vividly remembered. Award-winning filmmaker Rick McKay takes a journey over four continents and five years to find out whether there had ever truly been a golden age of theatre and, if it really did exist, why it had never been documented. As the film progresses, audiences will be delighted by amazing, rare, archival footage and photos and riveted by the fascinating personal stories told by the now-famous people who lived them.
