LISTEN to today's show featuring Tim Federle!
Right around Broadway performer Tim Federle's third career transition, he realized how many of his hard-won showbiz lessons he could apply to not just being a successful performer, but to being a successful all-around person too.
Life is Like a Musical is for people who find themselves desiring something-- stronger relationships, or a better job or a clearer way of seeing their own lives.
So silence your cell phones, and get ready to break a leg (so to speak) and schedule an interview with the lively and very musical, author/writer, Tim Federle, whose advice will let the performance speak for itself.
LIFE IS LIKE A MUSICAL
How to Live, Love, and Lead Like a Star
by Tim Federle
Step into the leading role of your own life!
On Tuesday, October 3rd, the self-help book with a showbiz twist, LIFE IS LIKE A MUSICAL, will be available wherever books are sold.
Life is Like a Musical (Running Press) is the latest non-fiction title from Tim Federle, whose bestselling cocktail recipe books Tequila Mockingbird and Gone With the Gin turned book clubs upside-down. This time, Tim gets personal, with 50 essays drawn from his life as a theater kid-turned-chorus boy-turned Broadway playwright. It’s Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, with jazz hands—and it’s already been hailed as “hilarious, wise, and one-of-a-kind.”
Life is Like a Musical isn't necessarily for people who spontaneously break into dance routines in the middle of the street. It’s for anyone who wants to find their own song, whatever that means to them. From “Cast Yourself in the Role You Want,” to “Life is Not a Dress Rehearsal,” Tim guides readers on how they, too, can benefit from wisdom learned backstage, onstage, and in between gigs.
No theater experience required. Just a desire to take on the role of a lifetime—one’s own.
