Stars Align to Celebrate New Book On Algonquin Hotel "The Algonquin Kid"
The Drama Book Shop, Thursday, April 2 at 6pm
Stars of Broadway and the Oak Room Gather For Book Launch for The Algonquin Kid

On Thursday, April 2, from 6-8 PM, New York's Drama Book Shop will host the launch of the new book by Michael Elihu Colby: The Algonquin Kid: Adventures Growing Up at New York's Legendary Hotel.

Published by BearManor Media, the book The Algonquin Kid covers the years Michael 's grandparents, Ben and Mary Bodne, owned the legendary Algonquin Hotel (from 1946-1987), spearheading a cultural renaissance there. Lerner and Loewe wrote My Fair Lady at the Algonquin. Marilyn Monroe flashed Mary Bodne on the corner. Bellmen scrambled to find an Oscar winner' s missing bag of marijuana. And Michael would visit his grandparents (later moving into the hotel), encountering the glittering likes of Noel Coward, Ella Fitzgerald (who sang to him at breakfast) , Angela Lansbury, and Laurence Olivier.

The book also reveals how the Bodnes turned the hotel into a haven for victims of 1950s McCarthyism and a home away from home for such Black Americans as Ella Fitzgerald, Roy Wilkins, and Maya Angelou. Amid the hotel's parade of illustrious figures (some on a meteoric rise, some in tragic decline) . Ultimately, Michael found his own place in the topsy-turvy world of the Broadway theatre and musicals.

Performing will be stars of the Algonquin's Oak Room, Steve Ross (who opened the room), Broadway's Tovah Feldshuh, and K.T. Sullivan (now head of the Mabel Mercer Foundation and Lincoln Center Cabaret Convention). Other guest stars (singing numbers from Colby shows) include Tony Sheldon (PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT), Klea Blackhurst (EVERYTHING THE TRAFFIC WILL ALLOW), Christina Bianco (FORBIDDEN BROADWAY), Jessica Grové (A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC), Michael Winther (MAMA MIA!) and Jack Urbont (Emmy winning composer). The musical director is Michael Lavine. And there will be refreshments, lots of Algonquin alumni, and book signings.

Also expected to attend are cabaret stars Julie Budd and Peggy Eason, as well as Larry Hart II (nephew of Lorenz Hart) and such Broadway luminaries (many who've appeared in Michael's musicals) as Merle Louise (SWEENEY TODD), Michael McCormick (1776), Lori Tan Chinn (TV's Orange Is the New Black) and Bethe Austin (WHOOPIE!).

The Algonquin Kid is based on the popular series originally presented on the website: www.theaterpizzazz.com.

Ralph Nader (Our Media, Not Theirs, Cutting Corporate Welfare, The Ralph Nader Reader, "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!", In Pursuit of Justice, The WTO, Told You So, Censored 2015, Censored 2015, Return to Sender)

Born in Connecticut in 1934, Ralph Nader has spent his lifetime challenging corporations and government agencies to be more accountable to the public. His 1965 book Unsafe at Any Speed permanently altered the course of a reckless U.S. automobile industry and made Nader a household name. His lobbying and writing on the food industry helped to ensure that the food we buy is required to pass strict guidelines before reaching the consumer. One of Nader’s greatest achievements was his successful lobbying for a 1974 amendment to the Freedom of Information Act, which gave increased public access to government documents. Over the years he has co-founded the public interest groups Public Citizen, Critical Mass, Commercial Alert, and the Center for the Study of Responsive Law. His 2000 presidential campaign on the Green Party ticket served to broaden the scope of debate on the nation’s priorities. Named by The Atlantic as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, Nader continues to be a relentless advocate for grassroots activism and democratic change. He lives in Washington, D.C. (added from Random House)… (more)
