From the producers: A staggering story of fantastic accomplishment and personal defeat intertwining intimate themes of love and loss with the great social issues that gripped the 20th century urban environment, "Bulldozer" charts the rise and fall of one man, the young woman who loved him, and the great human toll that was paid to build the city we live in today.
Robert Moses was an American public official who worked mainly in the New York metropolitan area. Known as the "master builder" of mid-20th century New York City, Long Island, Rockland County, and Westchester County, his decisions favoring highways over public transit helped create the modern suburbs of Long Island and influenced a generation of engineers, architects, and urban planners who spread his philosophies across the nation despite his not having trained in those professions.
"Rock of Ages" Tony nominee and former "American Idol" finalist Constantine Maroulis stars in the title role. He is joined by Wayne Wilcox as Nelson Rockefeller, Molly Pope as Jane Jacobs, Ryan Knowles, and Kacie Sheik.
