    I Danced on Broadway

      Memoir of a

    Career on Stage

      In this uplifting memoir, Lee Wilson shares stories from her four decades of dancing on Broadway, with anecdotes about theatre legends including Agnes de Mille, Richard Rodgers, Michael Bennett, Donna McKechnie, and Bernadette Peters. She details the economic, political, and social events that led from the Golden Age to the slump of the early 1970s to the rejuvenation of Broadway with the huge success of A Chorus Line. Wilson’s feminist viewpoint gives readers new insight into well-known musicals and examines why Golden Age musicals are still relevant to Broadway audiences today.

This book is for musical theatre students in high schools and colleges, performers in community and regional theatre, professionals on and off-Broadway, dance moms, lovers of musical theatre, and readers who want to peek into the rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, and hearts of Broadway dancers. 

Lee Wilson danced on Broadway in four successive decades. She performed in hit musicals, like Hello, Dolly! and A Chorus Line, and notorious flops, like Lolita, My Love and La Strada. She worked with Broadway legends, including Agnes de Mille, Alvin Ailey, Michael Bennett, Donna McKechnie, and Bernadette Peters. She lives, dances, and writes in Los Angeles.
