"We couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Seth Rudetsky to the Dress Circle Publishing family," said Dress Circle founder Brisa Trinchero in a statement. "He's a true Broadway jack of all trades and we can't wait for readers from all over the world to get a glimpse inside his starry, talent-filled life."
"Seth's Broadway Diary," according to press notes, "is a one of a kind Broadway journal chronicling his unique life on and around the Great White Way. It is full of his personal Broadway experiences, such as going to the final performance and party for Rent, watching in terror as Jeff Bowen was dragged off the stage during [title of show] and the night he saw Spring Awakening and helped Jonathan Groff and Lea Michele break (-ish) the law. Plus inside scoop on what it's like performing with tons of fantastic stars like Rosie Perez, Andrea McArdle, Betty Buckley and more."
Rudetsky, known as the host of "Seth Speaks" and "Seth's Big Fat Broadway" on Sirius XM, has worked as the music director, pianist or conductor for some of Broadway's biggest stars. He's spent years as a pianist on Broadway, playing such shows as Les Misérables, The Producers, Phantom Of The Opera, Grease and Ragtime and produced-conducted all of the Actors Fund annual Broadway concerts, including Dreamgirls and Hair. He has been seen in The Ritz on Broadway as well as in a one-night concert of They're Playing Our Song for the Actors Fund. In 2013, Disaster!, a 1970s disaster movie musical (written with Jack Plotnick), opened Off-Broadway.
