Susan Stroman, Chita Rivera & More Star in BATHTUBS OVER BROADWAY Documentary

Bathtubs Over Broadway, allows audiences into the secret world of unseen Broadway musicals. Susan Stroman, along with the film's writer, director and some of its actors peeled back the curtain Saturday at the film's world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

is now playing in select theaters throughout the U.S. When he started as a comedy writer for the LATE SHOW WITH David Letterman, Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while gathering material for a segment on the show, Steve stumbled onto a few vintage record albums that would change his life forever.

Bizarre cast recordings - marked "internal use only" - revealed full-throated Broadway-style musical shows about some of the most recognizable corporations in America: General Electric, McDonald's, Ford, DuPont, Xerox. Steve didn't know much about musical theater, but these recordings delighted him in a way that nothing ever had.

BATHTUBS OVER BROADWAY follows Steve Young on his quest to find all he can about this hidden world. While tracking down rare albums, unseen footage, composers and performers, Steve forms unlikely friendships and discovers that this discarded musical genre starring tractors and bathtubs was bigger than Broadway.

With David Letterman, Chita Rivera, Martin Short, Florence Henderson, Susan Stroman, Jello Biafra and more.
