Rick McKay puts the lights back on Broadway as he interviews past and present Golden Age legends. I was fortunate to see this film at the Angelica followed by a Q and A with Mr McKay himself. This documentary is both informative as well as highly entertaining. As someone who did not have a good understanding of the Golden Age, I found this film to be exciting, funny and moving. Mr. McKay explains his fascination with the great white way which began for him as a young boy. Broadway legends are interviewed and tell the story of their coming to age, while Broadway itself comes of age. I highly recommend this film to both the Broadway novice as well as the Broadway familiar.

A "must-have" for anyone interested in Musical Theatre in America!

I had the pleasure of working for nearly 3 years as Unit Production Manager on 'Broadway The Golden Age.' Hands down, it taught me more about the history of New York Theatre than the nearly twenty years I spent as a working actor. There are more little-known quips, stories and re-tellings in this film than you could possibly ever get backstage or anywhere else for that matter. Anybody even remotely interested in that which is our most precious, not to mention endangered species - the American Theatre - needs to see this film. It will clearly define why LIVE theatre is so important, and why it needs to be forever nurtured, and cared for. It also shines a glaring light on how much theatre has changed since accessiblity has been replaced with an unfortunate Corporate 'Mega-Hit' mentality.

I saw Broadway: The Golden Age at the Savannah Film Festival last year. It is an important historical document as well as a very entertaining film. It is a 'must-see' for students of the theater
