Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2004 ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for Excellence in Music Books and the 2003 Special Jury Prize for Distinguished Achievement: The Theatre Library Association. In 1971, college student Ted Chapin found himself front row center as a production assistant at the creation of one of the greatest Broadway musicals, Follies. He kept a journal of everything he saw and heard and thus was able to document in unprecedented detail how a musical is actually created. Now, more than 30 years later, he has fashioned an extraordinary chronicle that sheds new light on a still-evolving art form while vividly capturing an era increasingly long gone. Follies was created by Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Michael Bennett, and James Goldman--giants in the evolution of the Broadway musical and geniuses at the top of their game. EVERYTHING WAS POSSIBLE takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride, from the uncertainties of casting to drama-filled rehearsals, from the care and feeding of one-time movie and television stars like Alexis Smith and Yvonne DeCarlo to the pressures of a Boston tryout to the exhilaration of opening night on Broadway.

Book News Annotation:

As a production assistant on the Broadway musical Follies, Chapin kept a journal of everything he witnessed, including casting choices, rehearsals, off-Broadway tryouts, and opening night on Broadway. In this chronicle of the show, Chapin's journal becomes a snapshot of a moment in musical theater that has been eclipsed by spectacles dependent on sophisticated technology. Chapin is currently president of the Rodgers and Hammerstein organization.
