Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy (Episode #3806()

KQED 9: Thu, Mar 21, 2013 -- 7:30 PM

Why has the Broadway musical proven to be such fertile territory for Jewish artists of all kinds? From Broadway's golden age, names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwin's, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind. More recently, Broadway babies such as Stephen Schwartz, Marc Shaiman and Andrew Lippa represent a sampling of the Jewish talents who continue to leave their mark on musical theater. Filmmaker Michael Kantor focuses on this central question left largely unaddressed in his Emmy-winning Broadway: The American Musical, combining interviews with performance footage, including many of the rousing anthems and timeless ballads America has loved for a century.

Magical Mystery Tour Revisited (Episode #3803()

KQED Plus: Wed, Mar 13, 2013 -- 4:00 AM

Produced at the peak of Beatlemania in 1967, "Magical Mystery Tour" is the least known of the various films starring The Beatles and was never theatrically released or nationally broadcast on US television, only receiving sporadic TV syndication in the 1980s. This documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes story on the making of the film, and provides context for "the summer of love" era that set the scene for its production.

The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour (Episode #3804H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Mar 13, 2013 -- 2:30 AM

Released in 1967, "Magical Mystery Tour" was arguably ahead of its time, with its mostly improvised and loosely plotted script providing a charming comic showcase for The Fab Four and their idiosyncratic sense of humor. The film recounts a series of episodic misadventures of John, Paul, George and Ringo on a bus tour with a cast of eccentric characters including Auntie Jessie, tour director Jolly Jimmy Johnson, tour hostess Miss Wendy Winters and conductor Buster Bloodvessel. Newly restored, the often antic production numbers feature such now Beatles standards as "Magical Mystery Tour," "The Fool on the Hill," "I Am the Walrus" and "Hello, Goodbye."
