A Blog Review of My Book -- Historic Photos of Broadway

My PR contact at Turner Publishing alerted me yesterday to one of the first reviews for my book, Historic Photos of Broadway. Click here for the review. Truth to tell, Everything I Know I Learned from Musicals is a new blog to me, but hey, I'll put it on my blogroll and keep on keepin' on. Here's the bio of the blogger:

Chris Caggiano is a writer, editor, and teacher who lives in Boston. He teaches the history of musical theater at the Boston Conservatory of Music. He also serves as unofficial dramaturg, lyricist, and all-around showtune fanatic for the Boston Gay Men's Chorus. He has a cocker spaniel named Oliver who is completely out of his mind, but nonetheless adorable.
Anyway, thanks for the review! And I hope to get to see your insane cocker spaniel one day. Also, sorry you felt the book's title is boring. We decided simple was best. But I hear ya.

Leonard,

Glad to be of service. As I said, I'm totally loving the book. The photo of the old Casino Theater broke my heart. It's just a stunning building. And it housed all those iconic twenties operettas. As I read throug your book I got this overwhelming sense of what we've list archtecturally and historically.

Also, love the name of your blog. Reminds me of that Bette Davis line from All About Eve:

Margo: "Clyde Fitch, though you may not believe it, was well before my time."

Bill: "I've always denied the rumor that you were in An American Cousin the night Lincoln was shot."

Regards,

Chris Caggiano
