By Richard Pilbrow
Introducing Richard Pilbrow’s new memoir, A Theatre Project, now available from PLASA Media.
People are talking...
"The author of the book happens to be one of my favorite folks of all time. I can barely imagine any time more enjoyably spent than in reading what follows in the book . . . He is the MASTER . . . and, thank heaven, wonderfully silly with it. My life has benefitted immeasurably from his being embroiled in it, as my closest friend and colleague."
— Tony Walton
"A Theatre Project is also a window into one of the secrets of Richard Pilbrow’s success and that is collaboration. No theatrical endeavor, whether it is a performance, a theatre, or performing arts center can be realized without collaboration . . . It is a true honor to call him a colleague and I must admit that his generosity and perseverance inspire. No one embodies the best of this crazy world of the theatre more than Richard Pilbrow."
— Joseph Volpe
