Broadway: The American Musical

BROADWAY: THE AMERICAN MUSICAL is the first documentary film to showcase the entire razzle-dazzle story of this uniquely American art form.

Hosted by Julie Andrews, the six-part series offers the best seat in the house to the greatest Broadway shows of all time.

Broadway: The American Musical Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation has plenty to tackle, with the series built out of various film and video sources, wound together to bring Broadway history to the screen. Source material isn't always in the best shape (the production works with what it's been given), and interview footage registers a touch too soft, but the BD viewing experience manages the drastic changes in image quality satisfactorily. HD-shot material looks very nice, finding Andrews's host segments looking crisp and expressive, with wonderful facial and theater details to study. Colors are natural and stable, carrying a certain theatricality for marquee inspections. For a program that's nearly a decade old, the package is comfortable to watch, with only a small amount of banding and filtering detected. Shadow detail is adequate, while skintones are natural.


Broadway: The American Musical Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 2.0 PCM sound mix is best valued for its fullness, a mighty achievement considering a large portion of the series details damaged footage of musical performances. Interviews are deep and stable, with an appreciation for personalities and accents, while Andrews's narration is crisp and authoritative, carrying the viewing experience with authority. The aforementioned braiding of film and video sources is gracefully handled on the track, rarely losing itself to outright shrillness and distortion. As a whole, the series doesn't lend itself to dimension, electing a frontal push that balances over three channels without irritation or unexpected fluctuation.
