BROADWAY OR BUST tracks the real-life stories of America's top high school musical performers, vying in the ultimate competition to find the nation's best young rising stars. Part competition, part performance and part non-fiction drama, the series starts with regional theater competitions, then moves to New York City, where the "best of the best" take part in grueling drama bootcamp and then compete in the National High School Musical Theater Awards (a.k.a. The Jimmy Awards). Series release date: 9/2012

The show at New York’s Minskoff Theatre is the final act and crowning highlight of the miniseries. The 60 finalists prepare for the big day. In just six hours, the lights will go up, the theater will be filled and, with the downbeat of the orchestra leader’s baton, it’ll be show time. Going into the final competition awards show, all of the judges have a short list of top contenders, but during the show itself, they’ll be asked once again to give scores to the leading performers based on the group performances and individual medleys. At intermission, the judges will cut the group to six finalists. Those six will perform their solos, and after another round, the judges will choose the two winners. In the words of director Van Kaplan, “This week … is going to shape their whole lives, whether they go into the theater or not.”
