Buoyed by their success in filling seats in sports stadia, the Riches decided to try their hands on Broadway. Some parallels were obvious, some perils were not. In her typical fashion, Mindy threw herself into the middle of the action. Bob was comfortable taking a more removed position from where he could reflect on the business of theater – – – therefore the title “The Man in Row R”.
From ideation to casting, from previews to opening night, from cast albums to roadshows, the Riches’ reflections provide the reader with a fascinating insiders’ unvarnished look at what Broadway is all about.
No strangers to the world of entertainment, the couple pull no punches ensuring their perspective, some poignant some humorous, is always honest and straightforward.
