Tag Archives: Bathtubs over Broadway

“Bathtubs Over Broadway” is a new documentary about midcentury industrial musicals, and it looks weird and wonderful.

These were Broadway-style musical plays put on at tradeshows and conferences, featuring production numbers praising tractors and bathroom fixtures and such, for an audience of salespeople charged with selling those kinds of things.

I have a friend who wrote and produced one of these shows, and I was peripherally involved. It was a blast.
