New from the creators of A Is for Audra: Broadway’s Leading Ladies from A to Z!

From AUDITIONS to ZIEGFELD, grab a ticket to this smash-hit, rhythmic alphabet book featuring your favorite performers, creators, songs, and shows from the Broadway stage!

Step into the spotlight and celebrate a cavalcade of Broadway legends! Start with “A” for “audition” with the iconic line-up from A Chorus Line, then peek behind “B” to see the “backstage” buzz, and dance along with “C” for “choreographers”.

Children and grown-ups alike can spot beloved stars and creators from today and yesterday, such as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patti LuPone, Michael Bennett, Jennifer Holliday, Ethel Merman, and Billy Porter. Readers will also see famous New York theaters, beloved shows such as Hamilton and Hairspray, and the crew, stylists, and technicians who are vital to each performance. It’s a celebration of the American stage that no fan is going to want to miss.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book is donated to The Actors Fund.
