(Limelight). Playwright/novelist/screenwriter Goldman analyzes Broadway from the perspective of the audiences, playwrights, critics, producers and actors. "Very nearly perfect... It is a loose-limbed, gossipy, insider, savvy, nuts-and-bolts report on the annual search for the winning numbers that is now big-time American commercial theatre." Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

i agree, really great Goldman. Talking with George C. Scott about how his vision of Dr. Cook's Garden differed slightly with Burl ives:)) And his recounting of how Vincent Price' singing voice sounded--but it is also a book about how creative people work and how vastly difficult the odds,a book that has its grasp around his honest opinions and how it really all is a bit of magic and speaking of MAGIC...
Goldman is hs usual entertaining, funny and informative self, a wonderful close-on view of the broadway season of yesteryear. I found it fascinating, especially since I remembered some of these productions, although a child at the time.
