James Greene has worked in many different productions and met the brightest stars of stage and screen. Now, in his vivid memoir, A View from the Wings, he chronicles his lifelong passion for performance and the many different places that passion has taken him.
Greene starts in the early years, with his performances at Emerson College in Boston. He describes signing the contract for Dwight Deere Wiman’s Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet as the most exhilarating moment of his acting career. As readers follow Greene through the next six decades of American theatre, they see the actor grow from an eager young student to a seasoned professional. It’s the many, many magical moments in between that make A View from the Wings an engrossing read.
Greene includes descriptions of experiences with luminaries like José Quintero, Jason Robards, Elia Kazan, and Robert Whitehead. Greene praises some of his fellow actors and directors—and also mentions a few “idiots.”
His memoir reads like a candid conversation with an old friend. Greene shares some of the secrets of show business, and his advice is invaluable for any young actors who are looking to get their own start on the stage.
