Hello, readers! It is I, the ever-busy, always behind schedule, A. Tonight is opening night of my latest show so I’m going to do my best to throw something together for you despite the nerves and excitement that threaten to consume me.
In the spirit of the theatre I’m pairing a little-known “theatre geek” novel by Seth Rudetsky. Broadway Nights is a silly, irreverent look at theatre from a music director’s point of view. Now, it helps to know a thing or two about musicals to enjoy this one, but it has a snarky sense of humor that will keep anyone laughing. Following the journey of music director on his path to conducting his first Broadway show the story contains a wealth of truth about the industry along with the hysterical fictional story of Stephen Sherrin.
It’s an easy read and requires an easy, fun, tart type of drink. Enjoy a whiskey sour with this one, but be careful you don’t snort it out of your nose… there are lots of laughs to be had.
