RICHARD SEFF has spent 60 years in the theatrical jungle as actor, playwright, columnist and critic, agent, librettist, investor and now memoirist. He first acted professionally in 1946 and his last engagement was in 2008. He took a 22 year leave of absence from the stage after a long run on Broadway in support of Claude Rains and on tour with Edward G. Robinson in the prize winning Darkness At Noon. During those 22 years he was an agent representing artists in the musical theatre on Broadway. He left the agency in 1974 at the height of his career to return to the stage. He is the author of Paris is Out! which brightened Broadway in 1970 for 104 performances. The musical Shine! for which he wrote the book, won a National Music Theater Festival Award in 2001 and has been published by Samuel French, Inc. and recorded by Original Cast Albums.
