This was recently updated to his website, which I check about once every two weeks. We now know what is to be included in his sequel:

"There are TWO sequels to “Broadway: The Golden Age” now filming! Due first, in 2006, is “Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age” (working title) followed by “Broadway: The Next Generation.”

“BROADWAY: BEYOND THE GOLDEN AGE” tells the stories of the legends that came to New York City and made history in the exciting era of the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, ending on August 25th, 1980, as director/choreographer Gower Champion dies on the opening night of his Broadway show “42nd Street.” Chapters of the film include lost footage of legendary shows and salutes to George Abbott, Michael Bennett, David Merrick, Stephen Sondheim, “Follies,” “A Chorus Line,” “Chicago,” “Gypsy,” Loraine Hansberry’s “Raisin in the Sun,” Black Broadway; The Great Teachers, focusing on the Actors Studio, Neighborhood Playhouse, Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen and Herbert Berghof.

BBGA also brings back many beloved stars from the original film, “Broadway: The Golden Age.”

“BROADWAY: THE NEXT GENERATION” picks up the story in 1980 as the entire landscape of Broadway and theatre in America begins to change. The film goes beyond traditional Broadway to theatre that is developing in storefronts, apartments and theatres all over the country and brings the story up to the present. The film already includes Jason Alexander, Debbie Allen, Alec Baldwin, John Barrowman, Bryan Batt, Jim Borstelman, Jason Robert Brown, Glenn Close, Alan Cumming, Daisy Eagan, Hunter Foster, Sutton Foster, Jeff Goldblum, Harry Groener, Adam Guettel, Ruthie Henshall, Cady Huffman, Richard Jay-Alexander, Cherry Jones, Simon Jones, Isabel Keating, Michael John LaChiusa, Robert Lopez, Cameron Mackintosh, Jeff Marx, Audra McDonald, Matthew Morrison, Christine Pedi, Amanda Plummer, Phylicia Rashad, Camille Saviola, Liev Schreiber, Marc Shaiman, Douglas Sills, Mary Testa, Richard Thomas, Wendy Wasserstein, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Scott Wittman, George C. Wolfe, Karen Ziemba and many more now filming. Advance previews and trailers will be available on this site soon."
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
