I loved this story and the author - who is the reader is absolutely fabulous. Now keep in mind that this book is about Broadway actors, dancers, musician, etc. There are a lot of gay characters in the book - as well as a lot of "drama" in their lives. This book is not for everyone - but it is a very fun book to listen to. I can't wait until he writes and reads another one...
The narrator adds great dimension to this book. I laughed out loud and rooted for Stephen throughout the book. If you forgot what tone is listen to this and then call your high school English teachers to tell them you got it now!
I purchased this because Kristin Chenoweth was a narrator, and because I would love to live in NYC!
It took two tries to listen to the book, but when I finally got into the book I found it enjoyable because of the multiple narrators, and because I wanted to find out how it concluded.
Hysterical! I 100% recomend this to anyone who loves musical theatre. This book has amazing narration. Seth is brillant and I loved how he used other Broadway stars. As soon as I finished I bought his second book. Love, love, LOVE this book.
this was just like listening to one of my best friends complain about his love life - except it's mixed with more broadway and nyc characters! it was a perfect listen for when i was running, had me laughing out loud and really enjoying the character voices.
If you have ever felt the magic of a broadway show then you will enjoy this book. It has the nervous energy of a woody allen film mixed with the excitement of abroadway showstopping number all rolled up in a fictional memoir. the characters interact has real people. Overall this story may not be for everyone but for some it will be a fun little listen
It may be a good and funny story but the reader with his "Valley Queen" like reading was more than I could take. Every 10 words, more or less, was the accenting of every syllable with a pitched note on the last like he was living in a musical. Maybe for other gays but not this one.
I ordered it for something light, funny, interesting, and gay. It was not funny. I actually got agitated and could feel my blood pressure go up while listening. Not that the content or views were bad - it was just like listening to one of those people talk. You know the kind - never listens to anybody else, loves to hear themselves talk, everything is sarcastic, trying too hard to be funny - "Hey, if you don't listen to me, I will just become louder and more annoying until you do listen to me!". Just plain painful.
