Nominated for two Academy Awardsr, Broadway Danny Rose is a "wickedly funny" (Playboy) and irreverent tribute to the zany world of New York lounge acts. A "delectable" (Variety) combination of dry wit, hilarious slapstick and biting philosophical subtext, Woody Allen's Broadway Danny Rose is "tender, poignant, wistful and marvelous" (L.A. Weekly), and "one of [Allen's] very best" (The New York Times)!
Saddled with piano-playing parrots, one-legged tap dancers and stuttering ventriloquists, Danny Rose (Allen) is the all-time loser of show-biz agents - until a sudden nostalgia craze lands his top act, scheming crooner Lou Canova, a coveted gig at the Waldorf. But when Lou refuses to go unless Danny escorts Lou's Mafia-moll mistress Tina (Farrow) to the concert, the stage is soon set for disaster. Taken with Tina, taken in by Lou, and even taken hostage by gangsters, Danny embarks on a hilarious and bittersweet adventure in his desperate bid to ensure that the show does go on... before it's curtains for more than his career!
