Leonard Soloway’s Broadway: Directed by Jeff Wolk. With Campbell Scott, Elizabeth Ashley, Olympia Dukakis, Tovah Feldshuh. Through verité documentary footage, humorous storytelling, interviews and archival film material, Leonard Soloway’s Broadway captures a Broadway few ever see as told through the eyes of a legendary Broadway producer you’ve probably never heard of. He lived an unconventional life on his own terms who, over a 70-year span, staged over 100 shows (and counting) which generated history making headlines, over 40 Tony Awards, 62 Tony Nominations, 21 Drama Desk Awards, 29 Drama Desk nominations and 3 Pulitzer Prizes in addition to launching the careers of famous stars known the world over.

“This movie basically reveal (unwittingly) who controls Broadway. And itu0026#39;s not pretty.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThese are old geezers who cling to their power until they are dragged to their grave.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSoloway is a rather boring character. Slow talker but clearly a hard worker who is out of step with the times. He is clueless on how to use the internet.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt will be more interesting to see who takes over once all these old cronies disappear.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThey didnt even know that typing on a computer has a spellcheck! OMG.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThey show a bunch of Playbills from Leonardu0026#39;s plays and frankly, none of them are all that impressive.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe secondary motive to this doc — besides the obvious gey agenda — is to tout some tap dancing garbage that will clearly go no where. Olympia Dukasis who clearly has not spoken to him in a hundred years give him a call and itu0026#39;s like crickets. What was the point of that?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd the Tappinu0026#39; Thru Life is ludicrous. Itu0026#39;s allegedly Maurice Hines giving kudos to his dead brother, but meanwhile if anyone is actually aware theyu0026#39;d know the two had a huge falling out and hated each other and nearly had fistfights.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was truly bored during most of this film, aside from a handful of interesting stories the old geezers have.”
