Bathtubs Over Broadway

Presented by Newburyport Documentary Film Festival
$12/Students and Seniors
All Seats are General Admission
Sponsored by Dyno Records, this is the inaugural screening of the Newburyport Documentary Film Festival’s NBPT DOCU BEST Series celebrating their 20th anniversary, welcoming back an award-winning audience favorite that opened their 2018 festival.
While gathering material for a segment on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, comedy writer Steve Young stumbled onto a few vintage records that would change his life forever.
Bizarre cast recordings marked “internal use only” revealed elaborate Broadway-style musicals about some of the most recognizable corporations in America: General Electric, McDonald’s, Ford, DuPont, Xerox. Directed by Dava Whisenant, BATHTUBS OVER BROADWAY follows Steve on his quest to find all he can about this hidden world. Along the way, Steve forms unlikely friendships and discovers that this discarded musical genre starring tractors and bathtubs was bigger than Broadway. Featuring David Letterman, Chita Rivera, Martin Short, Jello Biafra, Florence Henderson, and more.
