Comments Footnotes: A Memoir

  • J. Walker

    I grabbed a copy of this autobiography as soon as I ran across a copy of it, and discovered a close connection with Tommy Tune I'd never realized existed until he told me about his part.51 years ago, sometime this week or next, possibly today, I saw my first BROADWAY musical. It only played a week, but I was there!Previews began on the 28th of November, ran a week until opening night. It closed Christmas eve, 1966, according to IDBDAll right- I swear this is the truth, I have no need of making t [...]

    I do not have a clear recollection of seeing Tommy Tune dance for the first time, I think it may have been during a Tony Awards broadcast, he is tough not to notice. Seems appropriate that as I write this I'm watching this years Tony's but so far haven't seen him either on stage or in the audience. And I've never able to see him dance live on stage. This memoir is very sketchy and jumps around quite a bit and by his own admission at the end he didn't tell a lot of the show biz stories he could h [...]

    Someone somewhere (I can't remember where now) recommended Tommy Tune's memoir "Footnotes," from 1997, saying it was juicy and when I looked on it was selling for a penny (!) so I ordered it. It took the longest time to arrive (I am guessing media mail) so I almost forgot about it when it did. Whoever it was that recommended it, I thank you a million times - because I can't remember the last time something worth a penny brought me such joy. It's a poignant, joyous, and yes gossipy little book. [...]

    I read this for work reasons, as research. I was only vaguely aware of who Tommy Tune was when I picked it up off the shelf, but I needed to read a dance autobiography, and he was one of two available.The structure to this book is meandering, which limits it to readers with a keen interest in dance and Broadway history (which ain't me). Nevertheless, Tune is a charming narrator and has a sweet outlook on life. I enjoyed a number of his stories. And the first few paragraphs of his opening chapter [...]

    That Tune is a superbly talented dancer, choreographer, director, and so on, is a given, and these memoirs contain some interesting anecdotes about his career. But this book is all over the place. It's clear that someone told him he had to write a book, so he jotted down whatever random stories came to mindd they published that.


  • Guy

    Tommy Tune meanders all over his story. Reading this felt a little like going out to coffee with someone who is a little high on something and can't keep their train of thought. He sounds friendly, but he doesn't go much below the surface.


  • Anna

    enjoyable read, ok writing.


  • Sue Kozlowski

    Non-fiction. My first introduction to Tommy Tune - that's his real name! Broadway dancer, producer, in Will Rogers Follies.


  • Aimee

    I read this in one afternoon.just loved it.


  • Cathy

    Dancer/Singer/Actor/Choreographer Tommy Tune tells his story. I found it both interesting and fun. I've always liked Tommy and his book was definitely a good read.


  • Brian McCann
