Dimensions Behind the Twilight Zone: A Backstage Tribute to Television's Groundbreaking Series

Absorbing, fascinating look into another dimension of...The Twilight Zone
Stewart Stanyard has done us TZ fans a priceless service by researching, putting together, and writing this book. If you're a rabid fan of the series like me, you will have hogged it up in one evening. This impressive series of essays, commentaries, interviews and anecdotes fill in so many of the blanks that all of us were always curious about - what went on behind the scenes, impressions and ...
Let's Spend the Night Together: Backstage Secrets of Rock Muses and Supergroupies
Chicago Review Press, 2007
Let's Spend the Night Together...
Ms. Pamela has again used her heart and great writing/research skills to create another masterful non-fiction. Well-researched, artfully worded, truth-based, but nothing mean or hurtful (and I am sure there could have been.) She has a talent for getting at the truth, people love to talk honestly to her; but she does not betray any trusts for the sake of selling books. Some people will not ...
Backstage You Can Have
The Betty Hutton Estate
I was never a fan of Miss Hutton however since reading this book I've watched every available Hutton video I could find on the internet. What a life and what a talent. She could hold her own with the best of them. When I saw her dance with Fred Astaire I was blown away. She was not (I think) a trained dancer and I have to admit she was brilliant. There were a few exaggerated stories where I ...
Backstage with Julia: My Years with Julia Child
Nancy Verde Barr
Very Interesting Read whether you are a JC fan or not
I picked up this boook as I had enjoyed other books about Julia Child and this did not disappoint. The behind-the-scenes details are fascinating. I never watched Julia Child's show and am not interested in gourmet cooking at all. But Verde Barr takes us back in time to meet the real Julia - I like that she does not sugarcoat facts and is honest with both her own faults as well as Julia's. Even ...

The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage
I went to the release party for this book, and was so amazed at the candor and grace that Roxanna displayed as she talked about her life. Her perspective on sexuality is incredible, and in seeing the world through her eyes is something everyone should experience because the way she understands the world is so different. I bought the book because I thought it would be a fun summer read, but I ...
Theatre Backstage from A to Z

University of Washington Press
Great source of info on stage terminology
Know what a GOBO is? Need a refresher on painting techniques? Or need to know how to light your stage or build special scenery? It's in this book!!

The Backstage Handbook: An Illustrated Almanac of Technical Information
What a fantastic resource!
This is a great, great resource for anyone who works in the theater. So much information crammed into the pages of this book. Anyone who works backstage would do well to have this on their bookshelf.
Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards
BACKBEAT UK, 2008
I first became aware of Al Kooper in college in '68 and wore out a copy of 'Super Session' honing my blues bass chops while listening to Harvey Brooks. After 1968's 'Live Adventures" LP, I kind of lost track of him so when I saw this book, I was hooked. What a remarkable life! Starting out in New York, co-writing "This Diamond Ring", playing with Dylan, playing in the Blues Project, starting ...
More Mouse Tales: A Closer Peek Backstage at Disneyland
Good for Adults - Careful with Children
This book had some very interesting stories. My 9 year old and I are doing some research on Disneyland prior to a trip and she loved these stories of how the rides work and what a cast member's job is. The book does a great job of describing the backstage life at Disney. My daughter begs for me to read from this as our bedtime reading every night. However, some of stories are racy and very ...
Stagecraft Fundamentals: A Guide and Reference for Theatrical Production
Rita Kogler Carver
An excellent book for those considering a life in theatre
Full disclosure: I've known Rita for about ten years and consider her incredibly knowledgeable and intelligent as well as a number of those quoted or interviewed in her book. However, this does not mean that I was willing to skip the part of reading her book and just say "It's great, buy it!" As an NYU grad and lighting designer who has worked in theatre for almost twenty years, I received ...
Stagecraft 1: A Complete Guide to Backstage Work
William H. Lord
Very good book for high school but workbook needs revision.
This book is thorough for secondary level. The corresponding workbook asks questions for which some answers cannot be found in the textbook. Together these books are a very good resource for a teacher who wants to write his or her own curriculum. These books could be used as they are but caveats must be expressed to studetns before the material is assigned as printed.
One World/Ballantine, 2009
A Street Chronicle Party doesn't stop...
Krista Johns' contribution to this collection, "I'm Good," centers on Yummie, a female rapper that's as hard core as any dude in the game. When she finds herself in jail, will she stand true to her lyrics? Is she real, or is she a snake? Harold L. Turley II brings professional basketball to the table in "Chasing the Ring." Trey Winfield and his team can see the gold at the end of the rainbow ...

Enough to even keep Jimmy Page laughing for weeks!!!

There are a few stories in there that will really blow your mind - (pages 223-224) Enough to even keep Jimmy Page laughing for weeks!!! Incredible, Please tell me it isn't so? LOL I thoroughly enjoyed this book - it goes behind the scenes with many of the bands/musicians you care about that helped shape the ...
Not Fade Away: A Backstage Pass to 20 Years of Rock & Roll
Miller Freeman Books
I thought this was a good, literate book. I only read the stuff I was interested in, but there was plenty of that (especially the George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger profiles). Frank Zappa once said that rock and roll journalism is "Writers who can't write, writing about musicians who can't play music, for readers who can't read." And he was/is correct for 99% of rock journalism. ...

This exquisite book is a fitting tribute to the great John Galliano. Lowit's photos are every bit as eccentric and original as the designs they capture. Whether backstage, on the runway or in fittings, she seems to wrest passion from every square inch of each image. If you're a longtime fan of Dior and Galliano or new to the party, this is a special book that you shouldn't miss. It is a visual ...

Saturday Night: A Backstage History of Saturday Night Live
William Morrow & Co
Live From New York
Like many, I grew up watching Saturday Night Live, either new episodes or those rerun on various cable channels, marveling at the wonderful humor and originality. I had always heard urban legends surrounding the show, and its earliest moments, and when I discovered this book I knew I had to read it. The authors take you through the first several seasons of the show, showing the reader many ...
Backstage Prince, Vol. 1
VIZ Media LLC
Kimonos, Kabuki, and a sweet romance! Love it!
Ever wonder if famous actors are really as cool and calm as they appear? Well Ryusei certainly isn't! He is so painfully shy that he claims to hate people in general. Akari is the exception to that rule. She's sweet, happy and always eager to help. After accidently clobbering him with her heavy bookbag, Akari becomes Ryusei's backstage assistant till he heals from the major bruises she ...
