Diaries of a writer in New York.
Inspiration – Club Gelbe Stern – in a basement cabaret theater at the Laurie Beechman Theater on 42nd street being taken into the decadence of Nazi Germany by Australian singer and actor Alexis Fishman equalled Lisa Minnelli in the iconic ‘Cabaret’.
I have always loved the book, but the Broadway production of ‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time’ by Mark Haddon was powerful, extraordinary, incredible in the emotional depths, technical excellence in gaining insight into an autistic boy Christopher and the impact on his parents, teachers, community and us. One of the great experiences of theatre!
Then there’re publishers, editors, art directors – Penguin, Random House, HarperCollins, Viking, Scholastic, St Martin’s ….. more. New York is the publishing heart of the USA and beyond.
