Showstopper is author/journalist Abigail Pogrebin’s fascinating chronicle of her teenage experience in the original cast of Stephen Sondheim’s startling misadventure (and now cult favorite), Merrily We Roll Along. In this Kindle Single, Pogrebin recounts colorful behind-the-scenes details of how the show came together and then hit the skids, and muses with candor about how the experience informed her perspective.

Abigail Pogrebin is the author of Stars of David and One and the Same, both from Doubleday. She was a producer for Mike Wallace at 60 Minutes, and for Charlie Rose and Bill Moyers at PBS. A freelance writer for publications such as New York Magazine and The Daily Beast, she moderates an interview series at The JCC in Manhattan called “What Everyone’s Talking About.”
