Présentation de l'éditeur

Angela Lansbury faced a serious challenge when she was auditioning for the title role in Mame. "I don't know how to sing except in the role. I never knew how to do exercises and I don't to this day. I just stand up and sing," she recalls looking back over half a lifetime. "But there were several people who helped me build my voice and when it came to Mame, and the songs I got to sing, they were natural for me." The part was a perfect fit--and it made her a Broadway superstar. In Nothing Like a Dame, theater journalist Eddie Shapiro opens a jewelry box full of glittering surprises, through in-depth conversations with twenty leading women of Broadway. He carefully selected Tony Award-winning stars who have spent the majority of their careers in theater, leaving aside those who have moved on or occasionally drop back in. The women he interviewed spent endless hours with him, discussing their careers, offering insights into the iconic shows, changes on Broadway over the last century, and the art (and thrill) of taking the stage night after night. Chita Rivera describes the experience of starring in musicals in each of the last seven decades; Audra McDonald gives her thoughts on the work that went into the five Tony Awards she won before turning forty-one; and Carol Channing reflects on how she has revisited the same starring role generation after generation, and its effects on her career. Here too is Sutton Foster, who contemplates her breakout success in an age when stars working exclusively in theater are increasingly rare. Each of these conversations is guided by Shapiro's expert knowledge of these women's careers, Broadway lore, and the details of famous (and infamous) musicals. He also includes dozens of photographs of these players in their best-known roles. This fascinating collection reveals the artistic genius and human experience of the women who have made Broadway musicals more popular than ever--a must for anyone who loves the theater.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST for Theater Lovers! 23 février 2014
Par JustEnjoyTheShow - Publié sur
I anticipated that I would enjoy this book by Eddie Shapiro - I just did not anticipate how MUCH I would enjoy it! The interviews are, very refreshingly, NOT concise! They are in depth, they answer questions that a fan would ask, they answer questions that theater professionals would have, they answer questions that sometimes, had not even been asked (See Elaine Stritch and Carol Channing).

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves theater - particularly musical theater - in your life. Whether they are a professional, a fan, a lover of celebrity - this book combines all of it. I feel like I 'know' the journeys of these women so much better now - and I understand, possibly for the first time, the benefits and the repercussions of being a celebrated TONY Winner - which is a rare thing.

Buy it- it is like sitting down with your best friend after watching a show and saying how much you loved it. It should be recommended reading for all theater majors in University, in my opinion. I have bought it for myself and I have given it as a gift - it is just the BEST.

These really are conversations, not interviews - and that makes them invaluable. Each of these women reveal things that I haven't heard/read them reveal anywhere else, and by the time I got to the end of the book, I felt sad that the conversations were over. There's a lot to be learned here, not just about working in the theater, but about resilience and grace and humor and confidence and food poisoning.
If I quoted all my favorite lines, this review would be as long as the book, so here's a selection:

"The Tonys are a pain in the ass." - Patti Lupone, p. 161.

"I do think my only job is to fight for my character, and I learned that. It's not to be best friends with everyone. And it's not to complain behind people's backs. It's to get s*** done." - Laura Benanti, p. 344

"You're angry about everything when you're younger." Debra Monk, p. 236.

"I was studying voice with the renowned soprano Eva Likova who had one glass eye because her husband had thrown a chair at her in a fit of rage. She had a cat that she would throw at me when I was late, and I was always late." Victoria Clark, p. 250.

"I know every woman that you are interviewing has said the same thing: you can't rely on the business to make you happy." Kristin Chenoweth, p. 296.

I have been snowed in with this book and am loving it! I feel like I have had tea with Angela Lansbury and lunch with Sutton Foster! Thank you so much for giving me an intimate look at the lives of the women whose talent and art have brought my life so much joy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must for Theatre Lovers! 15 février 2014
Par Randy Buck - Publié sur
Eddie Shapiro's new book of interviews with practically every Broadway diva within memory is like having a cozy chair and cup of tea in front of a roaring fire while listening to these stars recall their career-long triumphs and trials. Devoured it in one day-long sitting; wish Eddie would give the leading men the same chance! Essential reading for Broadway lovers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful book. A must have for Broadway fans 25 février 2014

I couldn't put this book down! So many great ladies of Broadway in here... and what is especially cool is that many of the underrated legends, such as Judy Kaye and Debra Monk, get their own much earned chapters. I couldn't wait for it to come out and I was very very pleased. BUY IT!! Some great stories I've never heard by all the Tony winning greats.
