The Yearbook creators collaborated with a correspondent from each show to bring readers a uniquely intimate look at the special moments and relationships that develop during rehearsals and performances. Correspondents this year included Patti LuPone and Leigh Ann Larkin for Gypsy, Orfeh for Legally Blonde, Mandy Gonzalez for In the Heights, Michael Longoria for Jersey Boys, Max von Essen for Les Misérables and Eisa Davis for Passing Strange, among others.
Actor hangouts, memorable ad-libs, celebrity visitors, even memories of performance interruptions and catastrophes are among the fun facts collected in the comprehensive volume.
