"[G]reat performers all, and reminders of how Broadway reflected America's early-20th-century melting pot and influenced society's views on hot-button issues..."
Award-winning star of stage and screen Julie Andrews hosts the PBS mini-series BROADWAY: THE AMERICAN MUSICAL. The six-part documentary traces the 100-year history of the Great White Way through archival clips and revealing interviews with those who shaped Broadway's musical tradition: the writers, directors, stars, and choreographers.
