Trash & Treasures: Bathtubs Over Broadway


2019 has been a hell year and this is a balm of pure delight, so I can’t recommend it enough.

This documentary was delivered right to our doorstep with a stamp that said “your brand”: the tale of a late-night comedy writer and how he stumbled into the enormous and yet nearly lost world of the industrial musical, multi-million dollar shows put on for corporations and never meant to be seen by society at large. Which is a crime, because “My Bathroom” is a work of aural genius.
