will discuss her book
BACKSTAGE PASS TO BROADWAY
True Tales of a Theatre Press Agent at Barnes & Noble’s Upper West Side Store on
Monday, October 28th at 7 pm
Broadway press agent Susan L. Schulman will discuss her memoir, BACKSTAGE PASS TO BROADWAY True Tales of A Theatre Press Agent, at Barnes & Noble’s Upper West Side store, 2289 Broadway at 82nd Street, on Monday, October 28th at 7 PM. Ms. 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, dishy book, she shines the spotlight behind the show curtain, sharing true tales of her life in the theatre. Admission is free and her talk will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
Schulman was a New York City ‘theatre kid’ who waited outside stage doors, not for autographs, but to tell actors how they had enhanced her life. After learning her craft from some of Broadway’s legendary press agents, she handled the publicity for many Broadway shows including DREAM, DANCIN’, SLY FOX, STATE FAIR, APPLAUSE, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, SCAPINO, DEATH AND THE MAIDEN and REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT. 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. Schulman also explains what a theatrical press agent does, how she does it, and how theatre promotion has changed.
Broadway’s top graphic designer, Frank Verlizzo, known as FRAVER, has designed the cover for BACKSTAGE PASS TO BROADWAY.
