Thursday, March 21 – 7:30 PM INCREDIBLY STRANGE NEW DOC
BATHTUBS OVER BROADWAY, 2018, Focus Features, 87 min. Dir. Dava Whisenant. When he started as a comedy writer for “The Late Show With David Letterman,” Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while gathering material for a segment on the show, Steve stumbled onto a few vintage record albums that would change his life forever. Bizarre cast recordings - marked “internal use only” - revealed full-throated Broadway-style musical shows about some of the most recognizable corporations in America: General Electric, McDonald’s, Ford, DuPont, Xerox. Steve didn’t know much about musical theater but these recordings delighted him in a way that nothing ever had. BATHTUBS OVER BROADWAY follows Young on his quest to find all he can about this hidden world. While tracking down rare albums, unseen footage, composers and performers, Steve forms unlikely friendships and discovers that this discarded musical genre starring tractors and bathtubs was bigger than Broadway. With David Letterman, Chita Rivera, Martin Short, Florence Henderson, Susan Stroman, Jello Biafra and more. Winner of Best Documentary Screenplay at the 2019 Writers Guild Awards and Best New Documentary Director at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. Discussion following with director-producer-writer Dava Whisenant, writer-coproducer Ozzy Inguanzo, producers Amanda Spain and Susan Littenberg, and cast members Don Bolles (The Germs), Jonathan Ward and Melody Rogers.
