Audio Book Summary

In 1971 college student Ted Chapin found himself front row center as a production assistant at the creation of one of the greatest Broadway musicals ÊFolliesÊ. Needing college credit to graduate on time he kept a journal of everything he saw and heard and thus was able to document in unprecedented detail how a musical is actually created. Now more than thirty years later he has fashioned an extraordinary chronicle. ÊFolliesÊ was created by Stephen Sondheim Hal Prince Michael Bennett and James Goldman ä giants in the evolution of the Broadway musical and geniuses at the top of their game. ÊEverything Was PossibleÊ takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride from the uncertainties of casting to drama-filled rehearsals from the care and feeding of one-time movie and television stars to the pressures of a Boston tryout to the exhilaration of opening night on Broadway. Foreword by long-time NY critic Frank Rich.
