Editorial Reviews

Review

''A dishy, gossipy, flirty, sexy, dramatic and--of course gay--romance of the theater. Richard Taylor Pearson introduces us to the players behind a would-be Broadway hit. The hunky leading man is adored by the nervous newcomer who is intimidated by the catty understudy, and all of them are getting stroked, cajoled, browbeaten and manipulated by a mad genius director who holds 'private sessions' before rehearsal. If you eat up backstage intrigue, if you have playbill.com bookmarked, if Tony night is your Super Bowl, you will definitely get into The Role! --David Pratt, author of Looking After Joey and Bob the Book

''The steamy debut novel adds an overlay of confused identity to what is essentially a fantasia, with a Cinderella makeover swirling Mason into the limelight and the affections of a previously unattainable hunk...and there's a splendid supporting cast of colorful, well-drawn secondary characters.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''Anyone involved in theater, either professionally or just as a hobby, can attest to the bonds that form during a stage production. Friendships and romance naturally result from the time spent together reciting lines and blocking movement, and during the occasional drink or snack after rehearsal. Pearson's exquisite prose manages to bring this atmosphere to life on the page, where the players almost feel like members of your own family.... As they say in the theater, The Role is well worth the price of admission. --Chris Verleger for Edge NY
