Just finished seeing "Show/Business" for free at Rockefeller Center. (I think Gypsy1527 saw this movie at Tribeca Film Festival.) Before the screening, there was a mini-concert directed by Seth Rudusky of songs from "Hair" - Annie Golden! Orfeh! Julia Murney! Kathy Briar! Wow! Sutton Foster was there as a spectator. I also saw the Ave Q writers.

SHOW/BUSINESS is the story of aspiration, of heartbreak, of ecstasy. It is a landmark close-up of the passion, sweat, glory and insanely high creative and financial risk swirling around four of last season's biggest Broadway musicals ("Wicked", "Avenue Q", "Taboo" & "Caroline, or Change") as they rev up for Opening Night - and the triumph or tragedy that awaits them at the hands of critics and those ultimate arbiters of success or failure, audiences. The film takes us to the front lines of the battle between the forces of the artful, impassioned 'SHOW' and the harsh, unforgiving 'BUSINESS.' As directed by Broadway producer Dori Berinstein, SHOW/BUSINESS is a triumph of access. The film is produced by Dramatic Forces.

Sounds great, Sister Rose-I'll have to keep my eye out for it (either on the big screen or through Netflix eventually, which is good about getting documentaries).
