Joanna Lumley on Broadway BBC Radio 2 Tonight

On BBC Radio 2 tonight at 22:00 Joanna Lumley on Broadway presents part 2 of a series taking a historical, theatrical and musical journey down Broadway.

In a A Buck or a Pound she looks at how over the years Broadway has married creativity with enviable business acumen to become a mainstay of the American tourist industry.

She follows the money-makers, from Ziegfeld and his Follies to the dominant years of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Broadway re-established itself as the "Street of Dreams" through the hugely successful Lloyd Webber/Cameron Mackintosh "takeover" of the 80s and 90s and into the "jukebox musical" era of the noughties and to the present.
