The point being that events in show business tend to attain a larger than life quality, at least to the participants, either sadder or funnier than they would be if normal people were involved.I have earned a precarious living in various facets of the profession for nearly forty years, while observing, with wonder, these often bizarre moments. It seemed a waste to have them all disappear when I do.Therefore, in the interest of preserving a record of the antics of my fellow workers, from Ethel Merman to Bernard Wu, I dedicate this book. If you enjoy reading it half as much as I enjoyed living it, I will consider the effort eminently worthwhile.
