Footnotes: a memoir
In scintillating, sharp-witted "short takes", sometimes wildly funny, sometimes deeply moving, Tommy Tune shares the memories of a stellar career, from his coming of age in a small Texas town to his current status as one of the most celebrated, beloved, and original of Broadway stars.
Dancing is in his blood. His flapper room met his dad, a mountain of a man who was astonishingly light on his feet, at an Oklahoma City hop, and one of the enduring memories of Tune's childhood is of the two of them gliding together on a ballroom floor that had emptied as one by one couples dropped out to watch them dance.
In Footnotes*, Tommy Tune (yes, that's his real name) describes his rise to stardom on and off the Great White Way in such dazzling hits as Seesaw, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Cloud 9, and My One and Only. Tommy Tune is our one and only -- a warm and funny person, a brilliant dancer, singer, choreographer, and director, and, as he shows here, an equally gifted writer.
