This book attempts to explain why Broadway is what it is. The author takes each production of one year and relates it to some aspect of the over-all Broadway scene including directors, stars, playwrights, reviewers, audiences, tryout tours, scalpers, and backers.

William Goldman’s depiction of the inner workings of Broadway productions and the big personalities associated with them is very revealing. It was essential reading for me when I worked on my first Broadway show.
