A new generation of American musical theater artists come together in a "glorious mosaic of Leonard Bernstein's show tunes" (New York Times).
Brilliantly filmed in the very New York locations celebrated by the songs - Coney Island, Central Park, Times Square - this DVD joins today's performers with the ageless music of perhaps New York's greatest musical personality.
On the Town, Wonderful Town and West Side Story chronicle the city in all its variety and excitement, and these performances bring a heightened measure of entertainment to Bernstein's singular achievement. "New York, New York! a helluva town!" the company sings - it was never truer than in Leonard Bernstein's New York today.
“Clocking in at one hour, Leonard Bernstein's New York makes for a satisfactory show, especially for Bernstein fans eager to hear new interpretations of some of his less-revived songs. …wonderful songs like these just aren't being written any more.” - Glenn Erickson, DVDtalk
