Summary
Taking viewers back to the Roaring Twenties, this program examines the Broadway of the Jazz Age-the era of Runnin' Wild, George White Scandals, and Shuffle Along, which helped reopen Broadway's doors to African-American artists. The film also features unique talents like the Marx Brothers, Al Jolson, the Gershwin brothers, and the songwriting team of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. But the one-two punch of the talking picture and the 1929 stock market crash help illustrate how and why Broadway suffered a massive talent exodus to Hollywood. Interviewees include actress Carol Channing, the Gershwins' sister Frances Gershwin Godowsky, Al Jolson & Co. creator Stephen Mo Hanan, New Yorker theater critic John Lahr, music critic Jonathan Schwartz, theater historians Max Wilk and Robert Kimball, and director and producer George C. Wolfe. Highlights include rare performance footage of composer Eubie Blake and a segment of Rodgers and Hart's 1927 hit "Thou Swell" from A Connecticut Yankee
