Bullets over Broadway
Every artist has to sacrifice some integrity to find success, but in 1928, idealistic playwright David Shayne is about to lose the only morals he has left. Sure, he’s found a backer to produce his very serious play, Gods of Our Fathers, on Broadway. But that backer is mob boss Nick Valenti, who insists that his moll Olive gets a big role in the play. Nick’s the guy you say “no” to if you like wearing cement shoes, and the grating Olive is about as talented as a cement sock. It doesn’t help that the cast and crew loathe the neurotic David and his play, and that the lead actor seems insistent on eating himself to death. But that’s just the beginning of David’s artistic compromises—he soon finds himself engaging in an affair with the lead actress, and even taking credit for someone else’s words. As the formerly proud artist falls further from his lofty ideals, the situation devolves into one very funny downward spiral.
Based on the screenplay of the award-winning film, Bullets over Broadway marks a landmark collaboration between writer Woody Allen and Tony-acclaimed director and choreographer Susan Stroman. Making his Broadway debut in the role of David is television and film star Zach Braff, while Heléne Yorke from the hit show Masters of Sex portrays ditzy Olive and The Sopranos’ Vincent Pastore slips back into pinstriped suits to play mobster Nick. They and their fellow talented performers wisecrack and wiseguy through a show that pops with the classic tunes of the 1920s and ’30s.
