Broadway, West End Director Michael Rudman Releases Autobiography I JOKE TOO MUCH Today

Broadway and West End director Michael Rudman's autobiography, I JOKE TOO MUCH, is now available to purchase.

The title refers to a line in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, which he directed on Broadway starring Dustin Hoffman as 'Willy Loman' in 1984; the show took home the Tony Award for Best Revival that year.

Rudman kicked off his career at the Nottingham Playhouse as Assistant Director and Associate Producer. He went on to become the director of Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre, following a run as Artistic Director of the Hampstead Theatre. He then joined the National Theatre as director of the Lyttelton in the early '80s and eventually moved on to the Chichester Festival Theatre for its 1990 season. After that he led the Crucible in Sheffield from 1992 to 1994.

Among his more recent directing credits are Chin Chin for Bill Kenwright Productions, The Old Masters at the Long Wharf Theatre in Connecticut, Mrs. Warren's Profession in London at the Comedy Theatre, and Berlin Hanover Express at the Hampstead. He received the Drama Desk Award for directing The Changing Room on Broadway in 1973 and also led Hamlet in Central Park in 1975.
