When he started as a comedy writer for the Late Night with David Letterman, Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while he was gathering material for a segment on the show, Steve stumbled onto a cache of vintage record albums that would change his life forever.

Bizarre cast recordings—marked “internal use only”—revealed full-throated, Broadway-style musical shows about some of the most recognizable corporations in America, featuring writers and performers who would become legends. Steve didn’t know anything about musical theater, but these recordings delighted him in a way nothing ever had.

Bathtubs Over Broadway follows Steve Young on his quest to uncover all he can about this hidden world, as well as the unlikely friendships he builds along the way.
