NYC's Beloved Drama Book Shop Gets an Extended Run ... Thankfully ...

Bravo and appreciation to Lin-Manuel Miranda and two colleagues on the news today that they have purchased the famed and much-loved Drama Book Shop, in New York City.

This little gem of a resource has been around since 1917; it has even won a special Tony Award. The store was due to close later this month after a rather hefty rent increase from the owners of their building on West 40th Street.

Since the early 2000s, the store and its staff have been great supporters of my work and have featured all three of my books for actors on their shelves since then. My last visit there in October for an event for "The Next Edition" was a wonderful and tender reminder of the importance DBS has for all of us in the business of acting.

Long may it thrive!
