Conversations with the Great Women of Musical Theater, Nothing Like a Dame

Conversations with the Great Women of Musical Theater, Nothing Like a Dame , theater journalist Eddie Shapiro opens a jewelry box stuffed with glittering surprises, by in-depth conversations with twenty main girls of Broadway. He rigorously chosen Tony Award-winning stars who’ve spent the majority of their careers in theater, leaving apart those who have moved on or sometimes drop again in.

The ladies he interviewed spent limitless hours with him, discussing their careers, providing insights into the iconic shows, modifications on Broadway over the last century, and the artwork (and thrill) of taking the stage night after night. Chita Rivera describes the expertise of starring in musicals in each of the last seven many years; Audra McDonald gives her thoughts on the work that went into the five Tony Awards she received before turning forty-one; and Carol Channing reflects on how she has revisited the same starring function technology after era, and its results on her career. Here too is Sutton Foster, who contemplates her breakout success in an age when stars working predominately in theater are increasingly rare. Each of these conversations is guided by Shapiro’s skilled information of these girls’s careers, Broadway lore, and the small print of well-known (and notorious) musicals. He also consists of dozens of photographs of those gamers in their greatest-recognized roles.
