Abstract:

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.
