    One thought on “Footnotes: A Memoir”

    1. I grabbed a copy of this autobiography as soon as I ran across a copy of it, and discovered a close connection with Tommy Tune I d never realized existed until he told me about his part.51 years ago, sometime this week or next, possibly today, I saw my first BROADWAY musical It only played a week, but I was there Previews began on the 28th of November, ran a week until opening night It closed Christmas eve, 1966, according to IDBDAll right I swear this is the truth, I have no need of making this [...]

    2. I do not have a clear recollection of seeing Tommy Tune dance for the first time, I think it may have been during a Tony Awards broadcast, he is tough not to notice Seems appropriate that as I write this I m watching this years Tony s but so far haven t seen him either on stage or in the audience And I ve never able to see him dance live on stage This memoir is very sketchy and jumps around quite a bit and by his own admission at the end he didn t tell a lot of the show biz stories he could have [...]

    3. Someone somewhere I can t remember where now recommended Tommy Tune s memoir Footnotes, from 1997, saying it was juicy and when I looked on it was selling for a penny so I ordered it It took the longest time to arrive I am guessing media mail so I almost forgot about it when it did Whoever it was that recommended it, I thank you a million times because I can t remember the last time something worth a penny brought me such joy It s a poignant, joyous, and yes gossipy little book It doesn t follow [...]

    4. I read this for work reasons, as research I was only vaguely aware of who Tommy Tune was when I picked it up off the shelf, but I needed to read a dance autobiography, and he was one of two available.The structure to this book is meandering, which limits it to readers with a keen interest in dance and Broadway history which ain t me Nevertheless, Tune is a charming narrator and has a sweet outlook on life I enjoyed a number of his stories And the first few paragraphs of his opening chapter are k [...]

    5. That Tune is a superbly talented dancer, choreographer, director, and so on, is a given, and these memoirs contain some interesting anecdotes about his career But this book is all over the place It s clear that someone told him he had to write a book, so he jotted down whatever random stories came to mindd they published that.

    6. Tommy Tune meanders all over his story Reading this felt a little like going out to coffee with someone who is a little high on something and can t keep their train of thought He sounds friendly, but he doesn t go much below the surface.

    7. Non fiction My first introduction to Tommy Tune that s his real name Broadway dancer, producer, in Will Rogers Follies.

    8. Dancer Singer Actor Choreographer Tommy Tune tells his story I found it both interesting and fun I ve always liked Tommy and his book was definitely a good read.
