PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE
Fiddler on the Roof. Death of a Salesman. Hamilton. The Phantom of the Opera. For the past two centuries, Broadway has birthed some of the most beloved musicals the world has ever known. Oren Jacoby’s delightful documentary is a meticulously crafted history lesson and a testament to the hundreds of Jewish performers, writers, playwrights, and producers who launched their careers in New York City’s most sought after stages.

While Broadway exists to razzle-dazzle, Broadway’s most cherished players seek to engage and move audiences. Confronting challenging topics like the AIDS crisis and the African American experience, Tony Kushner and August Wilson may not have set out to prove that Broadway was the place where the world’s greatest stories come to life. However, their award-winning plays, Angels in America and Fences, will forever remain entrenched in the 20th Century American zeitgeist. A haven for cultural celebration, exploration, and examination, today’s Broadway is a diverse melting pot of fresh and innovative storytelling.

Featuring interviews with James Corden, Alec Baldwin, Helen Mirren and more, ON BROADWAY pays homage to the epic institution that generated thousands of jobs, provided endless hours of joy, and gave rise to the unforgettable legends of stage and screen. The lights of Broadway may be off for the moment, but this intimate review of Broadway’s best offers theater lovers another opening, another show from the best seats in the house!
