Leonard Soloway’s Broadway

Directed by Jeff Wolk

**Director/producer Jeff Wolk is scheduled to attend!**

In a career that has spanned more than 70 years, Broadway legend Leonard Soloway has helped bring to the stage nearly 150 productions that have collected more than 40 Tony Awards, 21 Drama Desk Awards and two Pulitzer Prizes. At age 90, Leonard is not done. Coaxing creativity out of chaos, the movie reveals Leonard’s extraordinary story as he and his team energetically work to get his latest production ready for its New York premiere. Interspersed with fly on the wall scenes of preparing the show are interviews with Broadway luminaries who have worked with Leonard, including John Slattery, Olympia Dukakis, Elizabeth Ashley, and others. Narrated by Campbell Scott, the film is a delightful ride through Broadway’s golden age, illuminated by Leonard’s dry wit and never-before-heard stories of everyone from Marlene Dietrich to Elaine Stritch. Leonard also relates candid moments from his personal journey as a proudly out gay man in an era when a “don’t ask, don’t tell” mentality was the rule, even in many theatrical circles.

Co-presented by Broadway in Chicago.
