Interview with Michael Eisner : raw footage ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Raw interview footage used for the documentary Broadway, the American musical. Michael Eisner, chief executive officer of the the Walt Disney Company from 1984 to 2005, discusses the American musical. Eisner, who grew up in New York City, speaks of how he attended the theater often with his family. He was fascinated with Times Square and Broadway, and spent hours in its arcades, movie houses and theaters. His longstanding interest in the theater was nurtured by his college studies. Eisner goes on to discuss how the Walt Disney Company, reluctant to enter the Broadway theater business, finally jumped on the bandwagon in the early 1990s with its decision to produce Beauty and the Beast, based on its animated film. The company developed the show in Houston using the company's in-house theatrical talent, and then moved it to New York where it became a long-running hit. Eisner discusses his company's background in producing live theater, and the differences between producing a live show and movie. As Eisner was developing Beauty and the beast he also agreed to renovate the New Amsterdam Theatre, overseen by architect Hugh Hardy. The Disney Company received considerable support from the Mayor and the Governor on the project, which was part of a larger effort already in place to redevelop Times Square. Eisner believes that the public, however, gives too much credit to the Disney Company for the overall improvements to Times Square which have resulted from its redevelopment. Eisner then discusses the company's choice to produce The lion king as its next Broadway show, based on Julie Taymor's creative concept, and featuring the songwriting of Elton John and Tim Rice. Eisner attended the show's opening in Minneapolis and found the audience's response to its opening sequence thrilling. The lion king has been extremely successful on Broadway, and Eisner describes how the company's business practices combined with its use of creative talent have resulted in its theater successes. Eisner speaks of Broadway ability to generate the "buzz" which allows a show to make the bulk of its profits elsewhere; the differences, from a business point of view, between opening a live show and a movie; how he combines his roles as corporate CEO and Broadway producer; the decline of individual entrepreneurs on Broadway; and the Disney Company's business model for producing a show. The interview concludes with Eisner' s general views on Broadway, its future, and why he believes the musical developed as a uniquely American art form. Interview ends ca. 45 min. The camera continues for another five minutes with silent depiction of decorative features of the New Amsterdam Theatre.
