    Director Dave McLaughlin and producer Lance Greene's "On Broadway" tells the story of Jack O'Toole, a 30-something Boston everyman, who writes a play about his dead uncle as a way to reconnect with his hard-nosed dad.

Mostly, though, she faces her own struggle to turn from darkness and despair toward a new beginni...
