Exclusive Podcast: 'Behind the Curtain' Chats with Michael Colby about Life with Theatrical Royalty at the Algonquin Hotel Imagine growing up in a world where your neighbors were Tennessee Williams, The Marx Brothers, Alan Jay Lerner, Noel Coward, Arthur Miller, and scores of others.

For Michael Colby, he did grow up in such a world because his grandparents owned New York's famous Algonquin Hotel. Now, Michael swings by Shetler to discuss with Rob and Kevin his enviable life as a real life Eloise of The Plaza.

Michael pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how he became the confidante of some of the Algonquin's most infamous residents, what prompted a flashing by Norma Jean, and why Harpo Marx never traveled alone!

Also, Michael shines the spotlight on Vivien Leigh, Ella Fitzgerald, and Lorenz Hart!
