Bullets Over Broadway

Production History: Woody Allen brought his 1994 film to Broadway in 2014 and garnered many Tony Award nominations for his efforts. Zach Braff channeled his inner Allen to portray playwright David Shayne.
Synopsis: Set in 1929—right before the stock-market crash—Bullets Over Broadway sees Shayne attempt to mount his musical, God of Our Fathers. To do so, he accepts financial backing from mobster Nick Valenti, but there’s a catch: Valenti’s talentless girlfriend must play the lead.
Why You Should See It: Allen’s humor shines against a soundtrack of playful takes on 1920s jazz classics, including “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizz-ness if I Do” and “Let’s Misbehave.”
