Broadway Directives

This season on Broadway illustrated the worth of good directors. “The battle between art and commerce on what we occasionally still call the Great White Way, continues as ever. But the happy surprise this year is that if you focus on the ample good work being done — and ignore the largely crass cacophony of the season’s musical fare, or the soulless star vehicles that will always be around — you might just be able to convince yourself that it’s a fair fight.”
