Broadway Review: BULLETS OVER BROADWAY

Bullets Over Broadway has everything, well almost everything, going for it. It has a score of timeless, and I mean timeless, songs. The opening number, "Tiger Rag" dates to 1917. Chances are, you will have heard most of the songs (depending on how old you are.) You will recognize "Ain't Nobody's Business," "Up a Lazy River," and "I've Found a New Baby," to name just a few. Many of them have had some creative license taken with the lyrics to make them fit into the script by Woody Allen.
