Broadway: Three Generations is a musical composed of abridged versions of three other musicals, Girl Crazy, Bye Bye Birdie, and Side Show.[1] It was presented October 2–5, 2008 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Broadway was directed by Lonny Price and choreographed by Randy Skinner and Josh Rhodes.[2] Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser conceived of the musical over a year before it was performed.[3]

Broadway was created in part to be a "splashy way to reopen" the Eisenhower Theater. The theater was renovated for 16 months for $17.9 million.[3]
