Product Overview

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.

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

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review ...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.

Variety ...a front-row-center seat for an enjoyable romp in the boards.
The New York Times ...An unblinking look at the genius and idiocy that goes into every Broadway production.
