I just received the book from Amazon and have skimmed through it..it looks wonderful. I had to stop and read some of the Annie bits, lol. On closing night, apparently EVERYONE ever associated with the show, from cast to producers to crew, were invited onstage by Martin. But not Bill. He was upset, having spent 7 years really involved in the show. The 5 Annies, who all ended up loving Bill & Sandy, were angry about this...

...another person we forget who was affected by the Joanna/Brittny events was Alexandra Kiesman. It seems she was allowed to perform a couple of times when Joanna was ill, but then was removed from understudy duties, and a secretly-rehearsed Brittny took over. For good. Bill was not happy about this. He is a Joanna supporter, so you have to read about this.

Another interesting anecdote...the album producers would not pay Cindy-Lou the dog to bark her part ,lol, so Martin improvised himself. This book is fun.....
