Mirthful New Memoir Recaptures Golden era of Broadway, TV
(PRWEB) August 30, 2014
New York City– Beatrice Williams-Rude’s mostly merry memoir chronicles her experiences as an innocent who arrives in Manhattan during the golden age of Broadway and TV in quest of a career in theater– or, dream number one, opera. “Misadventures of a Prospective Muse” (published by Xlibris) details episodes in her life consisting of the individuals with whom she crossed courses: famous and renowned, effective but notorious, investors and scams, lechers and protectors. She names those who helped and those who prevented.
. Williams-Rude’s roller-coaster life is translucented diverse vignettes. The book showcases more than 40 pages of pictures that consist of, to name a few, the familiar faces of Ingrid Bergman; Jackie Gleason; Martin Landau; Perry Como; Ed Sullivan; Ralph Meeker; Dina Merrill; John Forsythe; the playwright Dale (“Man of La Mancha”) Wasserman, Mike Wallace captured smiling, as few “60 Minutes” audiences have seen him, in addition to “the representative,” Don Taft.
. A chorus kid, starlet, singer and design, Williams-Rude was a contest-winning child pianist, having started to perform at age four in her native Philadelphia. She appeared on Broadway, off Broadway in summer season stock doing both musical funny and straight plays along with on TELEVISION. After getting 3 unpalatable stage offers– it was not the nudity, however rather the crudity, the grossness that turned her off– she went back to college, then got in the world of journalism as a copy editor and, later on, researcher, customer and author. In the winding course of her profession and relationships, she has actually had “more names than a con-man,” as Mike Wallace laughingly noted.
.”Misadventures of a Potential Muse” shows Beatrice Williams-Rude newing from being “the droop of the third grade,” to seeking to be a supporting gamer– a muse– in other individuals’s motion pictures, to the self approval to become a star in her own.
