    Awesome history of Broadway

    This is a great DVD for people who enjoy Broadway or history of American culture. I watched it all in one sitting and couldn't get enough. I definitely wanted to go see a Broadway show once I finished watching the DVDs. This is a great gift.

    A waste of money

    I wish I could've returned this item. It was a huge waste of money. I thought it would show various dances from Broadway shows. It is not! It has lots of interviews with people who put on the productions and a few minutes of the routines. Not what I was looking for.
