Ever wonder what it's like to be a touring stage actor? Wonder no more Michael Kostroff is here to tell you, in hilarious detail. His firsthand account of the exciting, funny, and sometimes bizarre highlights of his journey with the road companies of The Producers and Les Miserables will introduce you to beautiful old theatres, weird hotels, onstage errors, travel mishaps, colorful cast members, fascinating towns, theatre ghosts, and the art of singing on a revolving stage while lugging a dead body. Along the way, the author talks honestly about the challenges of keeping a performance fresh, managing burnout, and dealing with injuries as the eight-show-a-week schedule continues. Anyone who wants to know what a life in the theater is really like needs this funny, intimate, and unforgettable narrative. As one reader put it, "Move over 'Reality TV.' This is 'Reality Reading' at its most powerful."
