James Sheridan, co-author of Lucille Ball FAQ (with Barry Monush), joins Patrick Phillips on The Patrick Phillips Show to discuss all things Lucy. This episode has been re-posted on Onstage and Backstage with permission of Patrick Phillips.

About the Book
Although countless books and articles have been written about Lucille Ball, most people know only the surface details of her personal life and some basic facts about her popular television series. Lucille Ball FAQ takes us beyond the “Lucy” character to give readers information that might not be common knowledge about one of the world's most beloved entertainers. It can be read straight through, but the FAQ format also invites readers to pick it up and dig in at any point.

Bert Fink at Rodgers & Hammerstein sits down with three of the stars from the Sound of Music film, Heather Menzies, Nicholas Hammond, and Kym Karath, to talk about what it was like working on the film (including the scene with the puppets!) and what it's been like to remain a family with all seven of the "kids" from the movie, including the book they put together, The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook. The three non-Trapps, as they call themselves, share laughs and tears in this heartfelt episode of Onstage and Backstage from Hal Leonard and Applause Books. Thank you to Rodgers and Hammerstein for providing the audio of this episode.

About the Book: The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook
Seven very special children experienced The Sound of Music firsthand: the seven young actors cast as the von Trapp children. Now, for the first time, they tell their stories about making this celebrated film, from their auditions to rehearsals in Los Angeles to an incredible spring and summer in Salzburg, Austria. What was it like to work with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer? How did they learn the songs and dances for the musical numbers? Who almost drowned when the boat tipped over? What was it like to attend the gala Hollywood premiere? What were their lives like after starring in this legendary movie? And how did they become a family in real life, remaining as close as any brothers and sisters for the last 45 years? The answers are revealed at last and as a bonus, they have collected their never-before-seen own home movie footage on a brand-new DVD.
