'ShowBusiness': The Work Behind the Curtains

Maui Time | June 11, 2007
Even audiences not enamored with Broadway musicals could find Dori Berinstein's documentary, about the trajectory of four Broadway shows, entertaining and informative. "Wicked," "Avenue Q," "Caroline, Or Change" and Boy George's "Taboo" provide plenty of behind-the-scenes vantage points as the 2003-2004 Broadway season comes down to the list of winners and losers on Tony Award night. You have to respect the tremendous efforts of the creative people who throw their dreams into the Broadway ring, and this little doc goes a long way toward showing the years of work behind each make-or-break production.

Rated PG, 104 mins. (B+)
