A film by Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker
Described as "juicy, ...insightful and always entertaining," Moon Over Broadway has something for everyone. This behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Broadway hit Moon Over Buffalo--the play that marked Carol Burnett's return to Broadway after a thirty-year absence--gets personal with the cast and crew. The New York Times hailed it as "the best documentary of the year" and Rolling Stone declared it "a wicked delight." With its line-flubbing, air-kissing, back-stabbing, door-slamming, scenery-breaking fights, fits feuds, anxiety and neuroses, all wickedly funny, documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus have captured an incredible fly-on-the-wall view of what really goes on before the curtain goes up.

"It's rare to see a fly-on-the-wall documentary that's as much fun as Moon Over Broadway.  Entertainment Weekly
"...a front-row-center seat for an enjoyable romp in the boards.  Variety
"...An unblinking look at the genius and idiocy that goes into every Broadway production.  The New York Times

Editor's Note
This documentary is an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of a Broadway production of Ken Ludwig's comedy MOON OVER BUFFALO starring Carol Burnett (in her return to the stage after a nearly 30 year absence) and Philip Bosco. See what really goes on behind the curtain in this revealing and candid film, which reunites the filmmaking team of D.A. Pennebaker (BOB DYLAN: DON'T LOOK BACK, THE WAR ROOM) and Chris Hegedus (THE WAR ROOM).

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...Entertaining....Burnett comes off best..." -- Rating: B 06/30/2000 p.110

New York Times
"...The film is as candid and sharp as THE WAR ROOM in recording the sly maneuvers of extremely willful people..." 02/18/1998 p.E5

Los Angeles Times
"...MOON OVER BROADWAY is in fact very comforting. It suggests that professionalism, civility and sophistication are alive and well in the top rungs of the American theater..." 03/06/1998 p.C24

USA Today
"...A voyeur's treat..." 07/07/2000 p.7E

San Francisco Chronicle 8 of 10
...Pennebaker and Hegedus had incredible access. Often the same sequence is presented from several angles, with cutting to create a kinetic effect. There's the sense of privilege at being brought into this whole other world... The stakes are high, and the scars run deep. - Mick LaSalle
