It’s non-stop drama when 60 of America’s top high school musical theater performers arrive in New York City this summer for an intensive week of theatrical boot camp as they vie for a shot at stage stardom in the ultimate national theater competition.
Broadway or Bust features the first-ever TV series to capture the behind-the-scenes coaching and grueling rehearsal schedule leading up to the National High School Musical Theater Awards (NHSMTA). Popularly known as The Jimmy Awards — named in honor of renowned Broadway theater owner and producer James M. Nederlander — this national competition culminates in a unique weeklong New York experience — a make it or break it - week of rehearsals, coaching, and auditions that are capped by an awards event on a Broadway stage in front of a live audience and a panel of high-profile judges.

Conclusion. The 60 hopefuls take to the stage for the Jimmy Awards, where they compete in group performances and individual medleys. At intermission, the judges advance just six of them (three of each gender) to the finals, where they shine in solo turns before the best actor and best actress are named.
