We’ve all been watching Smash, and have enjoyed seeing how Broadway Producers are portrayed on primetime television (I can honestly tell you I have never thrown a drink in anyone’s face) . . . well now it’s time to see how us Producer types come out in the written word.
Author and up-and-coming Producer Ruby Preston just released Show Biz, “a fictionalized account of the Broadway gossip, opening night intrigue, backstage romance, and colorful characters that inhabit American musical theater.”
You can read more about it here.
And one of you can get it for free HERE! (As in right here on this blog!)
From the sounds of the synopsis of Show Biz, I get the funny feeling that it has a bit of a Law and Order ripped from the headlines thing going on. And that got me thinking about all the true-to-life dramas that have happened while we’ve been putting up our dramas. There was Patti LuPone being passed over for Sunset Boulevard on Broadway. And what about the firing of almost the entire cast of Les Miz when Cameron cleaned house. And remember . . . nope, can’t even talk about that one. My lips are sealed.
But are yours?
Comment below with the best actual Broadway story that you think would make a great subject of a novel and you could win your very own copy of Show Biz! (And anyone who says ‘the making of Spider-Man’ is officially ineligible, because that’s just like too easy, dude – step it up a notch.)
