About this title


The Tony-award winning Broadway dancer and choreographer shares his memoirs of his entertainment career, from his childhood in Texas to his rise to stardom in such hits as The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and My One And Only. 60,000 first printing. Tour.


Broadway icon Tommy Tune rummages through the packed attic of his eventful life as a nine-time Tony-winning dancer, director, and choreographer for his colorful memoir, Footnotes. Tune brings forth a surprising amount of grit from the glitter and froufrou, plus several startlingly graphic passages. His Texas boyhood amid supportive parents lead to a quick rise in the world of 1970s Broadway, and brought this modern-day Fred Astaire to success at the helm of shows such as Nine, My One and Only, Grand Hotel, and The Club. There are regrets, philosophy, affairs with men and women, and soft-focus reminiscences of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Agnes de Mille, and others. But behind it all he reveals an unaccountable feeling of emptiness and hunger for light, movement, and beauty. A sidelining foot injury in 1995 left him in the reflective mood conveyed in Footnotes, but Tune's story isn't over yet.
