Spend an hour and a half watching Bathtubs Over Broadway, streaming on Netflix. This is a documentary about a little known music genre called industrial musicals. These were full blown musical productions created specifically to generate in-house excitement for new products. Almost every major company, and many small companies, produced these for yearly employee seminars. The film features clips of productions, recordings of some of the wonderful (really!) songs and introduces you to some of the writers and performers. This little gem is well worth the watch… and you’ll come away feeling good. You might even hum a tune or two.
