Dress Circle Publishing will release Seth's Broadway Diary, Volume 3: The Inside Scoop on (almost) Every Broadway Show & Star, the third in a series by Playbill columnist and Sirius XM radio host Seth Rudetsky, November 14.
The book will be available on Amazon and Kindle; to preorder the book, visit dresscirclepublishing.com.
In the latest compilation of Rudetsky’s Broadway-centric “Onstage and Backstage” columns for Playbill that chronicle his life performing/hanging out with the Great White Way’s biggest stars, readers will find out what Patti LuPone said when Rudetsky suggested she sing her Evita songs in a lower key, what it’s like Skype-ing with Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and why Audra McDonald’s dog wakes up covered in her bras.
Tony Award winner Miranda said in a statement, "If Seth Rudetsky didn't exist, we'd have to invent him. He is the friend who points out everything glorious and silly about your favorite shows. He leaves you laughing helplessly and in awe of his gifts and time management skills. Read this book and see how much Seth gets done in a day. It will make you reach for more."
Six-time Tony Award winner McDonald added, “What I love about Seth is that even decades after I’ve told him a behind the scenes story about my life in the theater, he will remember it better than I can and tell it better and funnier than I ever could.”
Rudetsky has worked as the music director and/or pianist for Audra McDonald, Andrea Martin, Gavin Creel, Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Patti LuPone, Christine Ebersole, Jessie Mueller, and more. He spent years as a pianist on Broadway playing such shows as Les Misérables, The Producers, and Ragtime and currently divides his time between being the afternoon deejay on the Sirius XM Broadway channel/host of Seth Speaks and touring North America doing his show Deconstructing Broadway. His novels, My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan and the sequel The Rise and Fall of a Theater Geek, are available on the Random House label, and his Broadway musical Disaster! is licensed by MTI.
