“. . . required reading for anyone who is passionate about musical theater. . . a sublimely dishy portrait of Broadway’s golden age and beyond, ranging from legends such as Ethel Merman, Jerome Robbins and Stephen Sondheim to Laurents’ late partner, Tom Hatcher, whose influence on his work is movingly detailed.”

USA Today

“Laurents has created an indispensable account of his hard-won success. . . valuable as much for the advice it gives to future directors as for the passion with which it argues for the redemption of musical theater as a serious art form.”

The Buffalo News

“. . . a book that, in its frankness and warmth, is both a professional manual and a moving elegy.”

The New York Times Book Review

From the Hardcover edition.
