"There's no people like show people to take you behind the scenes [of Broadway theater]. The Frommers haven't written a history of Broadway. They've woven one from the recollections of an all-star cast of more than one hundred actors, directors, producers, designers, choreographers, publicists, authors, composers, and even critics."--"The San Francisco Examiner" "There s no people like show people to take you behind the scenes [of Broadway theater]. The Frommers haven t written a history of Broadway. They ve woven one from the recollections of an all-star cast of more than one hundred actors, directors, producers, designers, choreographers, publicists, authors, composers, and even critics." "The San Francisco Examiner"" ""It Happened on Broadway" is a fine compendium of chat from theater greats who love talking about their careers, their shows, their lives." "San Jose Mercury News"" "An oral history of Broadway by the people who lived it, this volume encompasses the triumphs and glorious failures, fights and betrayals, dedication and drudgery." Ingram"
