Tony-Award Winning Producer David Black To Read from ‘Falling off Broadway’
The Drama Book Shop, Thursday, May 28 at 6pm
Photo: Francis Hills Tony-Award Winning Producer David Black To Read from ‘Falling off Broadway’ Memoir Offers Backstage Story of Producing on The Great White Way

No other book to date has fully revealed what happens behind the curtain on Broadway, about which Black writes with great insight and humor.

Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. David Black will give a free reading from his just-released memoir Falling off Broadway. A book signing will follow.

About Falling off Broadway David Black produced 18 Broadway shows – his memoir brims with personal accounts of theatrical luminaries and well-known figures such as Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, Julie Harris, Gene Hackman, Joel Grey, Bernadette Peters, Burt Reynolds, Julie Andrews, Joshua Logan, Alan King, David Merrick, Donald Trump, and even Richard Nixon.

David Black is also the author of The Actor’s Audition, and The Magic of Theater.

The inspiration for Falling off Broadway is Black’s one-man play, which opened to rave reviews in both New York and London. Benedict Nightingale of The London Times wrote, “David Black is unabashed enough to own up to his life-lapses with a wry, dry humour. I enjoyed his show for the glimpses it gave of Broadway and one of its victims: himself.”

Accolades Abound “People in show business always seem to have the best stories. Maybe it’s the strength of their personalities, or the heightened cultural setting, or the chance that someone famous might pop up at any time. All these things are true in Black’s memoir…” - Kirkus Reviews

David Black has written a fascinating account of his prestigious career in the theatre. Thoroughly enjoyable.” - Hal Prince

“Always insightful, always with humor, David Black's Falling off Broadway is a terrific read.” - Olympia Dukakis

“Winning! Another welcome valentine to the theatre.” - Joel Grey Falling off Broadway, David Black's new memoir, is funny and surprising.” - Alan Arkin

"The Colonel and Hug" with Steve Steinberg
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, May 28 at 7pm
From the team’s inception in 1903, the New York Yankees were a floundering group that played as second-class citizens to the New York Giants. With four winning seasons to date, the team was purchased in 1915 by Jacob Ruppert and his partner, Cap “Til” Huston. Three years later, when Ruppert hired Miller Huggins as manager, the unlikely partnership of the two figures began, one that set into motion the Yankees’ run as the dominant baseball franchise of the 1920s and the rest of the twentieth century, capturing six American League pennants with Huggins at the helm and four more during Ruppert’s lifetime.

The Yankees’ success was driven by Ruppert’s executive style and enduring financial commitment, combined with Huggins’s philosophy of continual improvement and personnel development. While Ruppert and Huggins had more than a little help from one of baseball’s greats, Babe Ruth, their close relationship has been overlooked in the Yankees’ rise to dominance. Though both were small of stature, the two men nonetheless became giants of the game with unassailable mutual trust and loyalty. “The Colonel and Hug” tells the story of how these two men transformed the Yankees. It also tells the larger story about baseball primarily in the tumultuous period from 1918 to 1929 -- with the end of the Deadball Era and the rise of the Lively Ball Era, a gambling scandal, and the collapse of baseball’s governing structure -- and the significant role the Yankees played in it all.

Join Steve Steinberg on May 28 for our Clubhouse conversation...

RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “The Colonel and Hug” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Steve Steinberg is a baseball historian and coauthor (with Lyle Spatz) of “1921: The Yankees, the Giants, and the Battle for Baseball Supremacy in New York.” (Clubhouse)
