VIDEO: Matthew Broderick Stars in Jimmy Kimmel's Parody Musical of 'Sully'

New York is the home of Broadway and there are lots of new musical adaptations happening right now. Jimmy Kimmel decided to have some fun with that, so he and his team came up with a fake musical based on a real local event, the Miracle on the Hudson which is the story of flight 1549 and the heroic work of Captain "Sully" Sullenberger.

They made up a poster, went to the theater district and asked people on the street to give a positive review to a show that does not exist in our first ever edition of "Fraudway."

The musical became a reality when Tony Winner Matthew Broderick and the cast of "Hudson, We Have a Problem!" came on to perform the opening number of their fake Broadway sensation.

Watch the hilarious clip below!

Broderick made his stage debut at 17 in Horton Foote's On Valentine's Day opposite his father, James Broderick. Off-Broadway: Torch Song Trilogy (OCC, Villager Award), The Widow Claire.
