9781511320054: I Got the Show Right Here: The Amazing, True Story of How an Obscure Brooklyn Horn Player Became the Last Great Broadway Showman

Guys & Dolls... The Boyfriend...How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying... Can-Can... These are just a few of the many Broadway shows produced by the legendary Cy Feuer, who, in partnership with the late Ernest H. Martin, brought to life many of America's most enduring musicals.

Cy Feuer was at the center of these creations, as well as the films based on two of Broadway's most exceptional musicals, Cabaret and A Chorus Line. He was the man in charge, the one responsible for putting everything together, and—almost more important—for holding it together.

Now, at age 92, as Cy Feuer looks back on the remarkable career he had on Broadway and in Hollywood, the stories he has to tell of the people he worked with are fabulously rich and entertaining.

  • There's Bob Fosse, a perfectionist with whom Feuer did battle over the filming of the movie Cabaret.
  • There's Frank Loesser, the brilliant and explosive composer of Guys & Dolls, Where's Charley?, and How to Succeed...
  • There's Liza Minnelli, star of both the movie Cabaret and the Broadway musical The Act, whose offstage activities threatened to disrupt the show.
  • There's the contentious George S. Kaufman, the librettist and director whose ego was almost as great as his talent.

Add to the list such glamorous figures as Cole Porter, Julie Andrews, Abe Burrows, Gwen Verdon, John Steinbeck, Martin Scorsese, and George Balanchine, and you have a sense of the unbeatable cast of characters who populate this fabulous story of a young trumpet player from Brooklyn who became musical director for the Republic Pictures film studio, then feverishly tackled Broadway, back when "putting on a show" did not require the support of major corporations, and when dreams of overnight success really did have a chance of coming true.

Funny, witty, and immensely entertaining, I Got the Show Right Here is a treat for anyone who loves show business, a story wonderfully told by one of Broadway's greatest and most talented producers.

About the Author :

Ken Gross is the former director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and is intimately familiar with most of the cars in this book. He is a well-known automotive writer whose articles have appeared in many popular magazines, and he has also provided collector car auction coverage on TV. His garage includes a very correct postwar-style '32 Highboy roadster, a '34 Ford coupe, and one of the world's largest collections of flathead Ford intake manifolds.

From Publishers Weekly :

From his birth in Brooklyn in 1911, Feuer seemed destined to become a legend in his own time. In this rollicking and rambunctious memoir, Broadway producer Feuer reminisces about his mother's dragging him to bandleaders and trumpeters, touting her son's musical talent. When his father died, Feuer's trumpet playing had to provide for the family; at 15 he was bringing home money from weekend club dates. After he finished Juilliard, Feuer made the rounds with big bands, playing venues such as the Roxy and Radio City Music Hall. Following World War II, Feuer and Ernie Martin formed a theatrical partnership and began to produce Broadway musicals. With curmudgeonly affection, Feuer recalls his greatest successes-Guys and Dolls, Can-Can, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Cabaret-and the stories surrounding them. He vividly re-creates Bob Fosse's temper tantrums, Cole Porter's obsession with finding the right lyric, and Liza Minnelli's staunch defense of her then-lover, Martin Scorsese. (Feuer considers today's Broadway musicals sentimental and not very deep.) Poking fun at himself and his foibles as often as he recalls the shortcomings of others, Feuer offers a tantalizing no-holds barred look at the halcyon days of the Broadway musical and the people who made them come to life on the stage.
