Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy

Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy

“I am trying to think if there was anyone on Broadway who wasn’t Jewish except Cole Porter.”

Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy relives Broadway’s greatest moments in all of its heart-warming and wonderfully kitsch glory, celebrating the creative legacy of a community that dreamed of a better life. Producer/director Michael Kantor (Make ‘Em Laugh: The Funny Business of America) high-kicks through a roll-call of some of the world’s most adored and recognisable tunes that today make up ‘The American Songbook’. The film features stage luminaries such as Rogers and Hammerstein, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerry Hermit, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Mel Brooks alongside dazzling archival performances from the likes of David Hyde-Pierce, Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Fanny Brice and Barbara Streisand.
