Jackie as editor : the literary life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Greg Lawrence( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History remembers Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis as the consummate first lady, the nation's tragic widow, the millionaire's wife, and, of course, the quintessential embodiment of elegance. Her biographers, however, skip over an equally important stage in her life: her nearly twenty-year-long career as a book editor. This book focuses exclusively on this remarkable period. At age 46, one of the most famous women in the world went to work for the first time in twenty-two years. The author, who had three of his books edited by Jackie, draws from interviews with more than 125 of her former collaborators and acquaintances in the publishing world to examine one of the twentieth century's most enduring subjects of fascination through a new angle: her previously untouted skill in the career she chose.--From publisher description
Colored lights : forty years of words and music, show biz, collaboration, and all that jazz by John Kander( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The autobiography, in dialogue, of the composer and lyricist of Chicago and Cabaret as well as a wise and witty memoir of forty years of American musicals. Composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb are the longest-running composer-lyricist team in Broadway history, having first joined forces in 1962. The creators of such groundbreaking musicals as Chicago, Cabaret, and Kiss of the Spider Woman, Kander and Ebb have helped to push American musical theater in a more daring direction, both musically and dramatically. Their impact on individual performers has been great as well, starting with the handpicked star of their first musical: an untested nineteen-year-old named Liza Minnelli (who writes of this experience in her introduction). Colored Lights covers the major shows of Kander and Ebb's partnership, from Flora, The Red Menace (starring a then-unknown Liza) to The Visit, due to open on Broadway in 2004. The pages and musicals in between reveal what has made theirs such a long-lived musical partnership--and one so valued by the artists they have worked with. In recounting the genesis and controversies of Cabaret, reflecting on the superstar mentality of such artist as Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand, and recalling their work with Bob Fosse on Chicago (as well as their views on the blockbuster 2002 film), John Kander and Fred Ebb provide a history not only of their own lives but also of the American musical theater of the late twentieth century
Time steps : my musical comedy life by Donna McKechnie( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donna McKechnie began her love affair with dance as a child in Detroit. At fifteen, she ran away from home to join a touring dance troupe, and in 1961, she was cast in the Broadway hit How to Succeed in Business. She was a Broadway "triple threat" who could do it all--dance, sing, and act. By 1975 she won a Tony in Michael Bennett's A Chorus Line. Here she writes about the trajectory of her career as it intertwined with her personal life and the lives of those around her. She also reveals the dark side of fame: from her parents' troubled relationship to a searing account of her own marriage to Michael Bennett and her inspiring triumphs over depression and the rheumatoid arthritis that nearly ended her career. With affectionate reminiscences of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, Stephen Sondheim, Fred Astaire, and many other well-known friends.--From publisher description
