On Broadway

Premieres Sunday, August 21 at 4:30 p.m.

Select this program when you support Arizona PBS and get the Playbill binder, playing cards and DVD.

On Broadway showcases how Broadway came back from the brink and led New York City’s last great rebirth thanks to innovative work, new attention to inclusion and the sometimes-uneasy balance between art and commerce.

The documentary is created through interviews of an all-star cast including legends of the stage and screen — Hugh Jackman, Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, August Wilson, James Corden, Alec Baldwin, John Lithgow, Viola Davis and Ian McKellen — who take viewers behind the scenes of Broadway’s most groundbreaking and beloved shows from A Chorus Line to Hamilton.

The programming also includes archival clips of iconic performances by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patti LuPone, Bernadette Peters, James Earl Jones and Mandy Patinkin.
