STAGE TUBE: First Trailer - Rick McKay's BROADWAY: BEYOND THE GOLDEN AGE Film!
The first trailer for BROADWAY: BEYOND THE GOLDEN AGE, the anxiously awaited sequel to Rick McKay's 2004 film "Broadway: The Golden Age" has just been released. Watch it below!
BROADWAY: BEYOND THE GOLDEN AGE is the long-awaited, much anticipated sequel to the award-winning feature film documentary, BROADWAY: THE GOLDEN AGE, which documented American Theatre in the 30's, 40's and 50's. This new installment continues the story from the legendary Broadway season of 1959 (GYPSY, RAISIN IN THE SUN, ONCE UPON A MATTRESS, etc.) through the tumultuous 60's (HAIR, OH, CALCUTTA, etc.), the revolutionary 70's (Sondheim, A CHORUS LINE, CHICAGO, etc.) up to the opening of 42ND STREET in 1980.
Once again, the filmmaker Rick McKay tells the story with in-depth, candid, personal interviews with over 100 newly filmed, legendary stars, while incorporating never-before-seen footage of the original productions as well as home movies and photos from the stars' personal collections, bringing to life a lost era in American history. Many of the stars of the film went on to become household names from their subsequent fame in film and television, and talk of the differences between the mediums and how the theatre gave them the foundation for their success in front of the camera.
The film will be released theatrically in late 2013 and DVD/Blu-Ray for Christmas. For more about the movie, visit www.broadwaythemovie.com.
