BROADWAY MUSICALS: A JEWISH LEGACY|
DIRECTOR: MICHAEL KANTOR
DOCUMENTARY: 90 MIN.
A terrifically entertaining smorgasbord of music! From the golden age of Gershwin and Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim, Jule Styne, and Lerner & Loewe, the rousing anthems and timeless musicals of Broadway amazingly were created almost exclusively by Jewish Americans. Illuminating interviews with great talents such as Hal Prince and Mel Brooks are interspersed with enduring performances from shows including, "Fiddler on the Roof," The Producers," "Funny Girl," "Gypsy," "Cabaret," and "Wicked." Narrator Joel Grey explores how Jewish culture and ethos are the roots of what is commonly referred to as "The American Songbook."
