As theatergoers prepare for the return of Broadway after an unprecedented absence of 18 months, Kino Lorber is releasing Academy Award nominee Oren Jacoby's documentary On Broadway. It will open Sept. 10 in Highland Park at Landmark's Renaissance Place Cinema.
The tribute to one of the most vibrant legacies of New York City, and the inside story of Broadway's last self-reinvention includes an all-star cast with Dame Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, August Wilson, Hal Prince, James Corden, Alec Baldwin, John Lithgow, Tommy Tune, Hugh Jackman and Sir Ian McKellen.
Also featured are interviews with some of today's most influential playwrights, directors, choreographers, performers and producers such as Alexandra Billings, David Henry Hwang, Oskar Eustis, Nicholas Hytner, Jack O'Brien, George C. Wolfe, Daniel Sullivan, Trevor Nunn, Julie Taymor, Sonia Friedman, Jeffrey Seller and Tony Kushner.
Jacoby is the founder of Storyville Films, the production company behind the Oscar-nominated documentary RBG.
On Broadway is now playing in New York and Los Angeles and expands to all major markets in the coming weeks, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Vancouver and the District of Columbia.
