Every year thousands of talented young actors, singers, dancers, musicians and artists make their pilgrimage to fame and glory via the bright lights of Broadway. In this tell-all story of her life as a young actress in New York and later as “Hollywood’s Youngest, Sexiest Producer, writer Barbara Dan pulls no punches as she describes the many pitfalls young actors are likely to encounter on the road to success in show business.
Her fascinating account also includes how, at age 23, she successfully opened her own showcase theatre in Hollywood to help other actors get discovered by agents, producers and the studios. Hired as assistant to the story editor of Shirley Temple Storybook and the Dinah Shore Chevy Show, she also describes TV and motion picture stars, cameramen, stunt men and other gifted people she met in the industry, as well as her own life-changing conversion to Christ, and shares insights into the false gods of fame, fortune and success and why they fail to deliver.
