A late night comedy writer stumbles upon a hilarious, hidden world of entertainment and finds an unexpected connection to his fellow man. [Metacritic]

"Bathtubs Over Broadway is pure pleasure, both in its exploration of a hidden and uniquely American corner of show business and its portrait of the charmingly nerdy Young and his singular path toward rescuing this sub-sub-sub-genre while many of its executors are still alive to tell their stories. "
- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"With its balance of exuberant humor and rigorous insight, Bathtubs Over Broadway provides as stellar an education for the uninformed as Siegel’s 'The Bathrooms Are Coming!'"
- Matt Fagerholm,
"You’re definitely going to laugh and laugh out loud. Young has several hilarious moments with his subjects, and the absurdity of these musicals and songs create an endless stream of silly giggles. "
- Alan Ng, Film Threat
"Bathtubs Over Broadway rediscovers the forgotten world of industrial musicals through rare recordings and film clips, and it is as smoothly entertaining as showbiz set piece, and at times flat-out funny."
- G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"Anyone who loves musical theater owes it to themselves to see Bathtubs Over Broadway, a delightful deep-dive documentary into one man’s obsession with the obscure world of industrial musicals — corporate-sponsored song-and-dance revues from the golden age of American capitalism."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
