Dori Berinstein's fine documentary chronicles the production of four high-profile musicals during the 2003-2004 New York theater season, two of them hits (the family-friendly Wicked and the quirky adult puppet show Avenue Q) and two of them flops (Caroline, or Change, a drama about black life in the South, and Taboo, Boy George's memoir of gay club culture in '80s London). A Broadway producer herself, Berinstein enjoyed intimate access to the people behind the shows and insightfully compares the creative processes of her intensely emotional subjects. Thrilling rehearsal and performance footage of Idina Menzel in Wicked, Tonya Pinkins in Caroline, and Euan Morton in Taboo is juxtaposed with thoughtful, funny, and revealing interviews with writers, directors, producers, publicists, and critics.
