This is the second part of my conversation with Kevin Winkler, author of the fascinating new book: Everything Is Choreography – The Musical Theater of Tommy Tune. 

If you missed part one, you may want to go back and listen to that before embarking on this one.

Today Kevin relates the saga of the all of the incredible behind-the-scenes drama that transpired during the rehearsals and out of town tryout of My One and Only – the “new” Gershwin musical that stared Tommy Tune and Twiggy.

He also shares the story of how Tune transformed a 1950s musical flop into the one of the most acclaimed musicals of what I call “The Modern Era of Broadway”. That show, of course, was Grand Hotel
