"Each chapter of the book is a different Broadway theatre," author Tepper explained to Playbill.com in an earlier interview. "Basically, [readers] get taken through the history of the theatre through people's personal stories and through my stories — chronologically."
"Volume 2" is the second in a multi-volume series that will examine 40 legendary Broadway theatres in total. "The Untold Stories of Broadway," which covers over 65 years of theatrical history, also includes an exclusive Broadway theatre map designed by Broadway artist Justin "Squigs" Robertson. According to press notes, the second volume will include interviews with Michael Grief, Lindsay Mendez, Jonathan Groff, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Julie Taymor, Bernie Telsey, Brian Yorkey and many, many more popular industry personalities.
Tepper, also a producer, writer and the director of programming at Manhattan nightspot 54 Below, interviewed over 200 theatre professionals to "elicit their funniest and most compelling backstage experiences on The Great White Way." Read more about the book.
