The 5-7 PM event at New York's Drama Bookshop will feature a signing with author Bruce Kimmel, who is also a musical theatre record producer, director and screenwriter. A special limited edition five-track CD will also be distributed at the signing. "Writer's Block," which is now in stores, is set in 1969 and follows the creation of a new Broadway musical. The book, according to a press release, begins at "the start of rehearsals, through the tryouts in New Haven and Boston, to opening night and after. The arguments, the fights, the tensions, the betrayals — yes, there’s no business like show business. But when someone vital to the show turns up dead, apparently of accidental causes, it’s time for one member of the production team to become an amateur Broadway sleuth in search of the truth — was the death an accident or was it murder?"
Writer Bruce Kimmel has produced over 130 albums, including the acclaimed "Lost in Boston" and "Unsung Musicals" series as well as the cast recordings of the revivals of Hello, Dolly! (Grammy nominee); The King and I; Bells Are Ringing; and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. He also wrote, co-directed and co-starred in the cult movie classic "The First Nudie Musical."
The hardcover "Writer's Block" has a retail price of $24.95. The Drama Bookshop is located at 250 West 40th Street. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 944-0595, ext. 417.
