<p><b>The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</b></p><p>It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.</p><p>While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.</p><p>The playscript for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.</p><p>This definitive and final playscript updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding World prior to the beginning of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</p>

The lives and loves of Daisy and Violet Hilton follows the poignant life story of twin sisters who were literally joined at the hip, set against the tumultuous backdrop of America during the first half of the 20th century. Daisy and Violet and an unforgettable cast of show-business characters come alive on the pages of this carefully researched and sensitively written biography.<br /><br /><b>Reviews</b><br /><br />"Jensen's book is a testament to the fickleness of the entertainment world."<br />-Tampa Bay Tribune<br /><br />"It is an affecting story, gently and honestly told without frills, without sensation. In Jensen's hands, the twins are always human, individuals, never freaks joined at the hips as the world saw them after their birth in 1908. . . Here, their story is pure."<br />-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

<DIV><B>Now the FX limited series <I>Fosse/Verdon </I>starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams with Lin-Manuel Miranda executive producing. </B><BR /><BR /> “Wasson is a smart and savvy reporter, and his book abounds with colorful firsthand tales.” — Janet Maslin, <I>New York Times</I><BR /><BR /> “Fascinating . . . Wasson has taken complete control of his subject.” — <I>Wall Street Journal</I><BR /><BR /> The only person ever to win Oscar, Emmy, and Tony awards in the same year, Bob Fosse revolutionized nearly every facet of American entertainment.

Yet in spite of Fosse’s innumerable—including <I>Cabaret</I>, <I>Pippin</I>, <I>All That Jazz</I>, and <I>Chicago</I>, one of the longest-running Broadway musicals ever—his offstage life was shadowed by deep wounds and insatiable appetites.<BR /><BR /> To craft this richly detailed account, best-selling author Sam Wasson has drawn on a wealth of unpublished material and hundreds of sources: friends, enemies, lovers, and collaborators, many of them speaking publicly about Fosse for the first time. With propulsive energy and stylish prose, <I>Fosse</I> is the definitive biography of one of Broadway and Hollywood’s most complex and dynamic icons.<BR /><BR /> “Spellbinding.” —<I>Entertainment Weekly</I><BR /><BR /> “Impeccably researched.” —<I>Vanity Fair</I><BR /><BR /> An NPR Best Book of the Year</DIV>

<b>A backstage pass to the groundbreaking, hit musical <i>Hamilton, </i>winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, including the award-winning libretto, behind-the-scenes photos and interviews, and exclusive footnotes from composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda.</b><div><br />Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical <i>Hamilton</i> is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.<br /> <br />HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages--"since before this was even a show," according to Miranda--traces its development from an improbable perfor­mance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.<br /> <br />Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sond­heim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by Presi­dent Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot.<br /> </div>

THE IDEA is a manual for conquering the most important part of the writing process -- the first part. Most writers (and most screenwriting books) rush too quickly through choosing a story idea, to get to the process of outlining and writing it. And it's the biggest reason most projects don't move forward in the marketplace: producers and editors are underwhelmed by the central concept. Multiple Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning screenwriter and producer Erik Bork (HBO's Band of Brothers) explains the seven key ingredients in stories that have a chance of selling and reaching a wide audience - in any genre or medium.
