Before Tim Federle became a bestselling 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 Life 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 readers to step into the lead role of their own life, even if they're not a recovering theater major.

reviews

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

"Federle (Tequila MockingbirdT) 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 tongue-in-cheek cocktail books, a middle-grade series, an acclaimed YA novel, and a Broadway show to his name, Federle has proven himself to be a veritable chameleon of a writer. Now he offers up a self-help guide by way of Broadway. In 50 bite-sized chapters, he doles out life lessons and little wisdoms gleaned from his years in the theater, sparkling with the trademark cheeky wit so evident in his Twitter account. ... Theater lovers will enjoy the peek behind the curtain of the industry, but this is valuable advice for all.—-Booklist
