Big Thank Yous to Jeffry's uncle Garry Denman who emailed me about this gem of a book.
I just got it and am having a hard time putting it down! I was lucky enough to
see Jeffry's wonderful turn as Munkustrap during CATS' last year on Broadway and well, he writes
as well as he performs. This book started out as a journal, documenting what it was like to
leave CATS and join the cast of The Producers. There's lots of great behind-the-scenes stuff,
personal insights on the life of a stage actor and plenty of belly laughs too.
Stephen's personal experiences from audition to opening night of what was to become
the longest-running Broadway show in history. If you've ever wanted to know
what it was like to be a Real Jellicle Cat, this is the book for you!
Another excellent behind-the-scenes look at life in the theater.
