According to press notes, "Theatre press agent Susan L. Schulman has worked with some of Broadway's most talented and creative people - sometimes behaving badly and often with astonishing grace - as they struggled to create theatre magic. In this entertaining, dishy book, she shines the spotlight behind the show curtain, sharing true tales of her life in the theatre." Schulman has handled publicity for shows including Dream, Dancin', Sly Fox, State Fair, Applause, Death of a Salesman, A Streetcar Named Desire, Scapino, Death and the Maiden and Requiem for a Heavyweight. She has worked with Mary Martin, George C. Scott, Lauren Bacall, Yul Brynner, Robert Redford, David Merrick, Bob Fosse, Raul Julia, Zero Mostel, Vanessa Redgrave, Henry Winkler, Lesley Ann Warren, Katharine Hepburn and Glenn Close, among others.
Broadway graphic designer Frank Verlizzo designed the cover for "Backstage Pass to Broadway."
