Summary
David Merrick was one of the most astonishing showmen of our time. No other producer has equaled his percentage of hits or his demonic flair for publicity. His hits include Gypsy; A Taste of Honey; Hello, Dolly!; Promises, Promises; and 42nd Street. He waged much-publicized, and oftentimes staged, battles and feuds with such personalities as Barbra Streisand, Ethel Merman, Lena Horne, Woody Allen, Andy Griffith, and Carol Channing. In this biography, based on over 100 interviews with the major players in Merrick's life, theatre critic Kissel reveals the man, the mask and the myth of the charismatic and reclusive mogul.--From publisher description
