Directed by Andrew Lawton, "A Roundabout Road to Broadway" chronicles the theatre's road to success, revealing the artistic leaps of faith along the way — from producing plays out of a supermarket basement, to battling bankruptcy to becoming one of New York's most reputable cultural institutions. The company bills it as "one of the most remarkable comeback stories in NYC history."
After Feb. 6, audiences will be able to watch the film online at NBCNewYork.
