NEW YORK -- When's the last time you went to a Broadway show?
At 7 p.m. on May 5, ABC7 presented "Broadway Backstage: Spring Preview," a half-hour special celebrating the new spring season on the Great White Way.
Eyewitness News anchor Michelle Charlesworth hosted, with Tony award winner John Larroquette, currently on Broadway in the all-star cast of "Gore Vidal's The Best Man."
Audiences get the lowdown on all the new productions, from classic dramas to laugh out-loud comedies to hot, new musicals. Plus, we hear from stars like Blair Underwood, John Lithgow, Kelli O'Hara, Matthew Broderick, Linda Lavin, Harvey Fierstein, Raul Esparza, and former NBA greats Magic Johnson and Larry Bird who talk about how a new play based on their story is bringing sports fans into the theater.
Also, we visit Joe Allen, a famous Broadway hangout, known for more than just great food. Plus, we'll see how an HD video version of the Tony Award winning musical, "Memphis," was put together -- and take a look at a new computer app that has Broadway pros buzzing.
