Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He's a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he's just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well?

Of course not - his family is driving him crazy, and his boyfriend can't seem to get rid of his other boyfriend. Add to that an alcoholic diva, the cheapest producing team on Broadway, and a comatose casting director, and you have some of the other characters buzzing around Stephen's Broadway break. Then there's Stephen himself - neurotic and bitchy - who realizes that maybe total happiness is overrated.

Narrated by Seth Rudetsky, from Sirus radio and Broadway's The Ritz; Kristin Chenoweth, Tony Award winner, star of Wicked and TV's Pushing Daisies; James Wesley from the Rosie O'Donnell cruise ship; Jonathan Groff, Tony Nominee from Broadway's Spring Awakening; Andrea Martin, Tony Award winner, from SCTV, and currently in Young Frankenstein; Jeff Bowen, Hunter Bell, and Susan Blackwell from [title of show]; Andrea Burns, from Broadway's Tony nominated In the Heights; Andy Karl, from Broadway's Legally Blonde and the upcoming 9 to 5; Anika Larsen, from off Broadway's Zanna, Don't and Broadway's Xanadu; Mary Birdsong (from TV's RENO 911); Billy Porter, from Broadway's Grease and winner of Star Search!; Richard Kind, from TV's Spin City and Broadway's The Producers. Jim Price, from Les Miserables and Off-Broadway's Bat Boy; Ann Harada from Avenue Q and the upcoming 9 to 5; Emily Skinner Tony nominee from Broadway's Side Show; Juli Wesley - Becky's First Grade Class at PS 98; and Sally Rudetsky (Seth's Mom).

    " I highly recommend LISTENING to this book! it is read by Seth and other Broadway stars. I loved stepping into his life for a bit. I have always dreamed of a life on Broadway, and this gave me a funny and entertaining glance :) I wanted it to keep going!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Linn | 2/15/2014

    " Funny; might only be interesting to a musical theatre nut (which I am) but it was a good romp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/7/2014

    " This was a good book by one of my favorite people... it's interesting to know what really goes on in the pit and it's a compelling story. Got a little boring with all the affairs though... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Crystal | 2/3/2014

    " There were a couple funny parts but otherwise this book was a 2.5 at best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/30/2014

    " Total indulgence of my love of musical theater. Lots of fun. Behind-the-scenes of Broadway. Fun story. Totally playful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 1/26/2014

    " I loved this book! HOWEVER - it isn't for everyone. If you're put off by language and gay lifestyle, this isn't the read for you. Having said that, it made me laugh out loud! And the ending completely took me by surprise (2 out of 3). After meeting Seth this January, I'm a fan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/18/2014

    " If you are a Broadway Baby and/or a Seth Rudetsky fan, you will get a kick out of this book. Especially the audio version read by Seth himself. His distinctive whiney voice is one you will either love or hate. But I was laughing out loud for much of the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 12/14/2013

    " Very very funny. :) Though you may have to go to the gay section of your bookstore to find it - apparently having gay characters makes a book *about* being gay, these days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 12/14/2013

    " Like listening to your best friend dish! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 11/30/2013

    " Being a musical theater addict, I LOVED this book! Great insider's look at the business. Plus Seth Rudetsky is hysterically funny. If you like David Sedaris, you will like his style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 11/28/2013

    " Good book but definetely for theatre geeks! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rich Merritt | 11/5/2013

    " aMAHzing book!!! hiLARious read! I've seen Seth perform several times and could hear his voice as the narrator. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Owen | 10/21/2013

    " Very funny book. Seth Rudetsky is great, and I want his life. The end. "

    " A fun beach read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen O'Daly | 2/3/2012

    " Hilarious - not my type of book at all - however, to really be enjoyed, this book must be listened to as read by the author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Art | 10/23/2011

    " fun read for anyone who's been on stage "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elia | 6/19/2011

    " This was a surprisingly fun book to listen to. It was a rocky start since the author/reader is a bit flamboyant. That didn't bother me as much as his whining. But then he grew on me and I was absolutely hooked. It was also a fun backstage glance at the world of Broadway. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 6/13/2011

    " Just could not get into the book. Might try to re-read it later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon O | 4/26/2011

    " Seth was F-U-N-N-Y. Amazing how he could just channel his humor into his writing that seemed to flow effortlessly. I was laughing myself silly a few times. After this book, I am finding myself to be 'totally in love' with his work. Please, Seth. Please write more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/5/2009

    " A fun, backstage, fictional view backstage of the development of a Broadway musical, and the development of the show's musical director (with real-life backstage tales mixed in). The only thing that keeps it from being five stars is the frenetic pace of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 11/3/2008

    " Just could not get into the book. Might try to re-read it later. "
