Today, we’ll talk about the uncertainty, risk and gamble involved in a Broadway production. Dori Berinstein is a documentarian who followed four new Broadway productions in 2004 – two that ended up being successful, and two that didn’t. Berinstein will be joined by some of the producers featured in her documentary, “Show Business: The Road to Broadway.” We’ll discuss why some shows succeed and some don’t, as well as what producers do, and what the featured subjects of the documentary are working on now. “Show Business: The Road to Broadway” will be screened April 3-5 at the McGlohan Theatre in Spirit Square, and Dori Berinstein will be in town April 3, to answer audience questions following the screening.
