Hopelessly Hollywood: My Dreamland Diary, from Small Town Extra to Musical Theatre King for a Day by David H. Lewis
Curtain up on musical theatre, LA! Journey into the shadows of Tinseltown, where on dozens of small stages eager young actors fresh off the bus share the spotlights with forgotten idols and new stars rising. Follow collaborators Mike and David into this dream-drenched world, the two believing they are the next Rodgers and Hammerstein waiting to be discovered. But the City of Angels soon cures them of their heady illusions, sending each down a separate road, one ultimately tragic. Here is another Hollywood laid bare, a Hollywood amusingly evoked with rare cautionary candor.
