Photo Coverage: Ed Dixon Celebrates SECRETS... Release at the Metropolitan Room!

Broadway's Ed Dixon, currently featured as The Captain in Roundabout Theatre's Anything Goes, yesterday celebrated the publication of his memoir SECRETS OF A LIFE ON STAGE...AND OFF, with a cabaret act/book launch at The Metropolitan Room (34 West 22nd Street). View photos below!

SECRETS OF A LIFE ON STAGE...AND OFF, is the story of Ed Dixon's remarkable 42-year career on Broadway. He was worked with everyone from Busby Berkeley to Ruby Keeler to Leonard Bernstein, to Ann-Margret to Kevin Spacey to Tony Danza to Kathie Lee Gifford to Stephen Sondheim, and everyone in between. At the halfway mark of his very long stage career Mr. Dixon suffered a devastating drug addiction which nearly killed him and left him homeless. He then went on to rebuild his life and career and have even greater successes in his life and profession. A remarkable saga of success, devastation and redemption covering more than four decades. Dixon will read some passages from his book and sing songs from the shows he's composed and performed in.
