Part of the Great Canadian Biographies Series, the documentary features interviews with Billy Crystal, Pete Townsend and Christopher Plummer, among others. Documentary filmmakers Craig Thompson (producer) and Michael Savoie (director), according to press notes, spent almost a year following McAnuff on a "whirlwind schedule around the world that included the opening of Jersey Boys in Melbourne, Australia, directing two plays and overseeing the 2009 season at the Stratford Festival, and working on new projects in the U.K. and on Broadway."
McAnuff is the two-time Tony and Olivier Award-winning director of Jersey Boys, The Who’s Tommy and Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays. In 2008 McAnuff took on the role of artistic director of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival after more than a decade at the helm of the La Jolla Playhouse in California.
The documentary was produced by Ballinran Productions. For more information visit www.ballinran.com or www.bravo.ca.
