A comedy writer becomes obsessed with corporate musicals.
I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
As a comedy writer researching a segment for the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, Steve Young stumbled upon the wonderfully strange world of Broadway-style industrial musicals created by companies like General Electric and Ford to motivate their sales teams at private corporate retreats. Absurd but delightful productions like LIPTON ON THE MOVE and THE BATHROOMS ARE COMING! became Steve’s obsession. Dava Whisenant follows him in his entertaining quest to uncover the secret history of this unusual corporate American art form.
