About this title


Over the course of fourteen years Denise worked at more than fifty Broadway shows, ranging from blockbusters like Cats, Copenhagen, Def Poetry Jam, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera to forgotten flops. Was she an actor?

Nope. Just an usher. The job might not have been glamorous and the patrons might not have liked her. All the same, working on Broadway was anything but boring.

From onstage bloopers to sublime performances; from irate patrons to superfans who camped out overnight and wore full costumes to the theater, Denise saw it all. She tried to save baby mice from certain death, swore in Latin at obnoxious blowhards, visited David Belasco's subterranean pool, spent long hours hunting for crystal costume beads on the set of Cats, and watched desolate 42nd Street come back to life.

She can’t wait to tell you all about it.

Front of House: Observations from a Decade on the Aisle is a bright-eyed, perceptive love note to Broadway from a narrator who was neither a performer nor an audience member...but, perhaps, the intermediary between the two.

"A thoroughly interesting look at the life of an usher. A Red Ribbon Winner and highly recommended." - The Wishing Shelf Book Awards, 2016
