"Falling off Broadway" is a witty, entertaining memoir by Tony Award-winning producer David Black of his adventures on Broadway. Hal Prince says, "David Black has written a fascinating account of his prestigious career in the theatre. Thoroughly enjoyable." The book is filled with revealing personal accounts of theatrical luminaries and well-known figures such as Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, Julie Harris, Gene Hackman, Joel Grey, Bernadette Peters, Burt Reynolds, Julie Andrews, Groucho Marx, Joshua Logan, Alan King, David Merrick, Donald Trump, and Richard Nixon. This memoir is based on David Black's one-man play, which received rave reviews in New York and London. In the Times (London), Benedict Nightingale wrote, "David Black is unabashed enough to own up to his life-lapses with a wry, dry humour. I enjoyed his show for the glimpses it gave of Broadway and one of its victims: himself." Time Out said, "You couldn't make this stuff up. Black is an engaging performer...a remarkable character...he does it all with plenty of wit. The show is pure pleasure." More acclaim for David Black's one-man play, "Falling off Broadway," now an entertaining memoir: "A toast to Broadway! Stories are looped together like pearls on a superstar's necklace." -- London Evening Standard "The true story of a big-time Broadway producer who mistook his father for God and whose mother left him out of her autobiography." -- Show Business Weekly "David Black draws in his audience with a lighthearted joie de vivre, like a Mr. Rogers with flair." --Variety
