Summary
  • A biography of the "Prince of Broadway" highlights the wit and sophistication of the playwright and director, describing his rise from poverty to success in the theatrical world, and remarks on his contributions to American theater
  • "Dazzler is the story of the seen and unseen struggles that beset Hart in a life crowded with friends, glamour, and achievements, a life that seemed to be one triumph and delight after another. But it was actually a life tormented in ways we didn't know, and thus, heroic. It isn't just that Hart rose from humble beginnings to fame and fortune. It's that he rose above his private demons to achieve a kind of happiness that survives him still. He used to say, even in the face of failure, 'Well, we aspired.' Aspiration was a key to his life, and the key to this superb biography."--
