Showstopper is an honest, well-balanced and hard-hitting biography of one of the world’s most flamboyant show-business moguls. It is an emotionally powerful film illustrating the rise and fall of a man who modeled himself after Hollywood ubermoguls Adolf Zukor, Lew Wasserman and the Greek tragic hero, Icarus. Punctuated with key interviews, including those that despised Drabinsky’s draconian style, journalists and financial analysts who predicted his demise, industry insiders and the elite of the theatre community that mourn his passing, this film charts Drabinsky’s career, the art that inspired him, and the ten-year battle to bring him to eventually convict him.
