The cast of 'Bullets Over Broadway.' The cast of 'Bullets Over Broadway.' (Paul Kolnik)

The latest silver-screener to migrate to the Great White Way is Bullets Over Broadway, Woody Allen’s 1994 film about a playwright who becomes entangled with mobsters. The musical-comedy, set in the 1920s, employs hits of the era such as "Let’s Misbehave," and lesser known Tin Pan Alley tunes, and includes a cast of seasoned Broadway performers, as well as TV star Zach Braff. The production is directed and choreographed by the award-winning Susan Stroman.

The show has garnered half a dozen Tony Award nominations. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood offers his analysis of the show’s strengths and weaknesses.
