“Am I going to conquer New York? Kino Lorber unveiled the official trailer for a documentary film titled On broadway, from director Oren Jacoby. It’s a documentary celebrating the triumphant return of Broadway. Now that New York City faces an uncertain road to recovery from a devastating pandemic, this documentary from the producers of RBG shows how Broadway paved the way for the city’s last great renaissance and provides a model of how it can return. An all-star cast tells the inside story of Broadway theater and how it has come back from the brink through innovative work, a new focus on inclusion, and a difficult balance between art and commerce. Stage and screen legends including Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, August Wilson, James Corden, Alec Baldwin, John Lithgow, Viola Davis, Hugh Jackman and Ian McKellen take us behind the scenes of many of the most groundbreaking and best-loved on Broadway, from “A Chorus Line” to “Hamilton.” I’ve always been a Broadway fan and hope they come back as strong as ever.
