Broadway Baby
By Russell Miller with Judith A. Proffer
Illustrated by Yoko Matsuoka
$24.95, Meteor 17 Books

Okay, Broadway is shut down right now. That doesn’t stop us from dreaming about attending a Broadway show. And guess what? It doesn’t stop kids from dreaming about becoming a Broadway star. In fact, bedroom and backyard theatricals may be more popular than ever! In that spirit, Broadway operator and producer Russell Miller joined forces with Judith A. Proffer and illustrator Yoko Matsuoka to create the new picture book “Broadway Baby.” It celebrates the stars of tomorrow, the kids. Like our protagonist who says, “I dream about Broadway, stage left and stage right. The music, the dancing, my opening night!” Best of all, a portion of proceeds go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and a limited edition version is available exclusively at Playbill.
