Theatre press agent Susan L. Schulman has worked with some of Broadway’s most talented and creative people – sometimes behaving badly and often with astonishing grace – as they struggled to create theatre magic. In this entertaining, informative and ultimately dishy book, she shines the spotlight behind the show curtain, sharing true tales of her life in the theatre. She shares her adventures working with Mary Martin, George C. Scott, Lauren Bacall, Yul Brynner, Robert Redford, David Merrick, Bob Fosse, Raul Julia, Zero Mostel, Vanessa Redgrave, Henry Winkler, Lesley Ann Warren, Katharine Hepburn, Glenn Close and many more. Schulman has survived some spectacular theatrical train wrecks including the play that killed Zero Mostel, legendary producer David Merrick’s final hurrah, and the fading film diva who sabotaged her own return to Broadway. She also explains what a theatrical press agent does, how she does it, and how theatre promotion has changed. Softcover.
