The yellow stage lights feel hot on your face as the music swells and you begin your first number. You feel the notes deep within your body, and when those notes are shared, the result is a standing ovation. How did you get here? What steps did you take?

Crazy for “Hamilton”? Here’s 4 Books You Should be Reading!

in Fiction by

I think we can all agree that “Hamilton” is the best thing to happen to Broadway since, well, ever. It seemed to become a national phenomenon overnight, and now it’s all any of us can talk about.

in Potpourri by

Rizzoli Bookstore, the literary oasis on West 57th St in New York, was a destination check-marked on every tourist’s to-do list. Whether you were walking by, stopping in on your lunch hour or spending hours browsing all levels of the store, it was not to be missed. But one year ago, the news was announced that Rizzoli would be shutting its doors following the store’s lease expiration and it was a shock for customers, booksellers, authors and even publishers.

Rizzoli, however, did not go quietly and on July 27, 2015 the famous Rizzoli bookstore welcomed back book lovers from around the world to step…

Sex, drugs, desires, and razzle dazzle: exclusive interview with FOSSE author Sam Wasson

in Non-Fiction by

The flick of the wrist. The throw of the hip. Bowler hats, bowed legs, pigeon-toes and slumped shoulders. It’s the undeniable styling of the legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse. Now, more than 25 years after his death, and almost four years in the making, Sam Wasson, author of the New York Times bestseller Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman, has written Fosse, an epic biography detailing the exhilarating, yet depressing, life of the Oscar, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning legend. How did this relatively young guy—a visiting professor of Film at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut—get to write a book about one of the greatest choreographers of our time? What was he…
