Ambitious, Entertaining, Disappointing, Interesting

See it if you want the rare opportunity to see some costumes, set designs, factoids & clips from a few of the biggest hits from Bway & the West End.

Don't see it if you're not interested in Tonys & Oliviers. Huge lost opportunity by using award-winners as the through-line, limiting the shows to showcase.
