It sounds like this book would be absolutely excellent for a laugh, especially if you know the region well.

Great review thank you for sharing. This sounds like a great book for aspiring actors or anyone interested in shows on Broadway. Not something that I usually read though.

This autobiography was about fun and nostalgic memories written in a casual style to purposefully make the reader reminisce about the good old days. It’s a read if one wants a quick read filled with lifting moments. It’s not a bad book but perhaps a bit too casual.

Some autobiographies seem a little dry at times. With the humor in this one I think it would be an entertaining read. Thanks for the review.

This sounds like my kind of book: a good story spiced with a hefty dose of humor. Your review entices me to read the author’s account of his life as an actor.

This isn't usually my genre, but I found myself unable to stop reading the sample. I think I might like this one! I would love to go to NY, and I've always wanted to live there. At one point in my life, I would've been a struggling actor trying to make on Broadway, but my life took a turn. Thanks for the revew.

I read the sample and I found the writing style to be way bizarre. Far too many exclamation points are being used. I don't think this is a book for me.

Well, I haven't been to New York, hopefully someday soon, and I do enjoy stories about celebrities, acting and so on. If a greater part of this book contains the author's theater experiences and how he felt about them, then he's providing reviews like we do here, no? Lol. Anyway, I look forward to seeing those real life pictures for a more engaging read. Kudos on the review.
