'Golden' offers an H'w'd look at B'way

HOLLYWOOD — Hollywood was in a Broadway state of mind Tuesday night, when legit notables gathered at the Egyptian for a docu screening and chat about theater days gone by.

Rick McKay’s “Broadway: The Golden Age” features interviews with more than 100 legit stars — including Fay Wray, Angela Lansbury and Shirley MacLaine — talking about their experiences in the New York theater world in the 1950s and early ’60s.

Just as big a draw, though, was the Q&A session afterwards, with Martin Landau, Edie Adams, Gretchen Wyler, Fayard Nicholas, Patricia Morison and Hal Linden, who answered questions about a time when, as Nanette Fabray put it, “Theater was the boss, movies were No. 2 and television was No. 3.”
