Trivia

After the release of the video and DVD versions was announced, together with all the musical numbers, contract disputes forced the makers of the program to remove the "Man of La Mancha" and "Dreamgirls" sequences and substitute songs from other musicals in their place. This is why another announcer (instead of Jerry Orbach, the host) can be heard just before these numbers. Richard Kiley can be seen and heard singing "The Impossible Dream" on the Ed Sullivan video, "The Best of Broadway Musicals". See more »

I thought Broadways Lost Treasures was amazing. I am very young and wasn't even born before these shows were performed so I got a chance to see old Broadway, which in my opinion is the best. Patti LuPone is absolutely amazing, and so was Jerry Orbach. We know Jerry Orbach just recently passed away so this is a good memento to have and remember his stellar performing skills. My Broadway knowledge was expanded, and it led me to buying movies such as Chorus Line, Guys and Dolls and Cats. I also have the second Broadways Lost Treasures and it is equally enjoyable. This DVD is for anyone interested in Broadway and would like to see rare performances or just enjoy the magic of Broadway.
