Barnes & Noble, Lincoln Triangle

1972 Broadway, NYC (@ 66th Street)

Motorcycling with young Marlon Brando and Wally Cox through Rockland County. Meeting Lee Grant on the afternoon of her big break. Tagging along on friend Ella Logan's date with Sinatra. A visit to the Chateau Mouton Rothschild vineyard by invitation from Baron Philippe de Rothschild. I've Slept with Everybody, whose title is a play on the many forms of intimacy Sondra Lee has experienced, is a collection of snapshots of a life wonderfully lived. Sondra Lee thoughtfully documents her nearly 50 year career as a Broadway legend and fixture of the theater, television and dance scene. Humor and loving memories, recollections of trials and tribulations, and a countless series of short-lived and lifelong friendships and romantic flings with the famous and not so famous take the lead in this rich tale of what can happen to a fearless kid from Newark, NJ who has a talent and a determined will.

Sondra Lee was discovered in 1947 by the great choreographer Jerome Robbins who turned the Newark kid into a Broadway Baby in High Button Shoes. She won the hearts of millions as the original Tiger Lily in Peter Pan starring Mary Martin and shined in Hello Dolly! alongside two legendary Dollys - Carol Channing and Ginger Rogers. She appeared in hugely successful theater productions Hotel Paradiso and Sunday in New York and has countless dance credits including the original Ballets: USA, soloist at the Metropolitan Opera and City Center Opera's Street Scene, and co-star in Les Ballets De Paris. She has gone on to become a renowned acting coach and director's consultant on award-winning films.

I've Slept with Everybody is indeed an informative play by play of Sondra's impressive resume, but is above all a vivacious document of her friendships - both romantic and platonic - with the inspiring luminaries she met along the way. Sondra transports readers to a specific place, time and feeling in her life - her young romance with Marlon Brando, her lifelong relationship with Jerome Robbins, her outrageous accounts of mentor Stella Adler, and her own mentorship of actors such as Jane Fonda - telling it like it was (and like it is) as only she can.

Praise for Sondra Lee and I've Slept with Everybody:

"Sondra is a fascinating, hilarious, story teller. I have known her since I was a toddler. But it was when I was around nine that I really fell for her, perhaps it is because we were the same size! This book is a treasure chest of remembrances from a unique character at the center and time and place that I truly love." - Matthew Broderick

"Sondra Lee takes us through the ‘key hole' into a life filled with glamour, humor and pain, and most importantly reveals her keen perception of all that has taken place in the process of a life marvelously lived!" -Angela Lansbury

"Sondra Lee has always been where the action is. Or is it that action happens where Sondra is? Thank God she's written it all down and the end result is just like Sondra; funny, sexy, smart, and ruthlessly astute." - Charles Busch

"Sondra Lee is irrepressible and irresistible. On stage, in life, and in this memoir. She floats, she flies, she makes us smile, and think, and reflect- and want more, a lot more of her life in the arts...A dance to Sondra!" - Jules Feiffer
