Publisher's Summary

A self-help guide - with jazz hands! Life Is Like a Musical features 50 wry, witty tips on getting ahead in life and love - all learned in the showbiz trenches.

Before Tim Federle became a best-selling author and a Broadway playwright, he worked as a back-up dancer at the Super Bowl, a polar bear at Radio City, and a card-carrying chorus boy on Broadway. Life Is Like a Musical features 50 tips learned backstage, onstage, and in between gigs, with chapters such as "Dance Like Everyone's Watching" and "Save the Drama for the Stage". This charming and clever guide will appeal to all ages and inspire listeners to step into the lead roles of their own lives, even if they're not recovering theater majors.

Critic Reviews

"Hilarious, wise, and one-of-a-kind. This book is so damn brilliant I'm surprised it didn't already exist." (Sarah Knight, best-selling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck)

"Federle (Tequila Mockingbird) draws on his experience as a Broadway dancer in this delightful handbook of 'hard-won showbiz lessons' that can be applied to all aspects of life and contribute to helping readers build more successful futures. Presenting advice 'borrowed from Broadway' in a series of 50 witty vignettes, Federle aims to inspire readers to make any changes they may be seeking, whether these changes are in service to getting a better job, a healthier relationship, or simply a greater sense of satisfaction...an intuitive guide that puts life into perspective in humorous and entertaining fashion." (Publishers Weekly)

"With his theater background and two Odyssey honors under his belt, it's no surprise that Tim Federle provides a stellar performance of his latest book.... The short chapters make for easy listening during brief moments of free time.... Federle's casual, even tone brings his advice to life while imparting the feeling of chatting with a friend."

Pretty Good

There was a lot of good advice in here. And it was witty. Occasionally, I found the author to be annoying.

I absolutely loved this book! It is a MUST READ (or listen to) for all Musical Theatre lovers. I will even be looking into how to purchase copies for my daughter's High School Drama Club!
