I was expecting more of an overview of Broadway but it seemed to get more into hidden gems . Since the first three episodes (more or less) focus on the time before the Golden Age of Broadway, you end up with a lot of background info, which is fine but not what I was expecting. I think at least the first two episodes could have been combined into one. A great documentary but I personally found it a little disappointing.
