‘Great Performances’

The new one-hour episode ‘‘Reopening – The Broadway Revival’’ pulls back the curtain to reveal how some of the most popular shows in New York undertook the monumental process of turning the lights back on after its pandemic-induced shutdown, the longest hiatus in history for the Great White Way. Hosted by Frank DiLella, the documentary views this reawakening from the perspective of such luminaries as Tony Award winners Adrienne Warren (‘‘Tina: The Tina Turner Musical’’) and Aaron Tveit (‘‘Moulin Rouge’’), along with Chita Rivera and Kristin Chenoweth.

Thankfully, Dave and Jenny Marrs have the skills and creativity to deliver just what this couple needs in the new episode ‘‘Life on Marrs: Victorian Hodgepodge Gets Modern Makeover.’’ Another new episode immediately follows. (TVG) 8 p.m. on HGTV.
