"ShowBusiness: the Road to Broadway", a new film by Dori Berinstein featuring the Broadway casts and creators of Wicked, Avenue Q, Taboo, and Caroline, or Change, opened in New York City on May 11th at The Landmark Sunshine Cinema. Regent Releasing and Liberation Entertainment will release the film, and its distribution will be platformed to many markets around the country throughout the Spring and Summer, including Los Angeles on June 1st.

Among those featured in the film are Rosie O'Donnell, Boy George, Alan Cumming, Sarah Jessica Parker, John Lithgow, Kristen Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, John Tartaglia, Tonya Pinkins, George C. Wolfe, Tony Kushner, Anika Noni Rose, Euan Morton and Cyndi Lauper.
"ShowBusiness" follows four high-profile productions that eventually became Tony Award nominees: a lavish musical prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Wicked; the Rosie O'Donnell/Boy George collaboration, Taboo; the highly anticipated Tony Kushner/Jeanine Tesori musical, Caroline, or Change and an irreverent musical sleeper hit with puppets, Avenue Q.
From casting to staging, from previews to red-carpet opening nights, from the announcement of the Tony nominations to the suspense-filled Tony Night, "ShowBusiness" provides a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of Broadway Musicals. Allowed unprecedented backstage access, director Dori Berinstein casts a camera's eye on rehearsals, backstage dramas, and the mysteriously wondrous creative process.
