In this thorough retelling of the rise and fall of cinema and theatre impresario Garth Drabinsky, we see all his Machiavellian ways, from ruthlessly challenging the Famous Players movie-house chain to fudging the financial books to keep musicals such as Ragtime running. Drabinsky was a heavyweight behind the scenes, as we all know from the blanket news coverage of his conviction for fraud in 2009. Barry Avrich’s documentary presents his story with a Broadway razzle-dazzle that suits Drabinsky’s showmanship, but it gets in the way of a fuller picture of the man. He obviously cared greatly about putting out entertainment he thought would sell, but it came at the expense of ugly backroom deal-making. Ask yourself this: Do you have the patience to watch all the archival press clips of Drabinsky talking about his accomplishments?
