From the author of the hit cocktail books Tequila Mockingbird and Gone with the Gin comes a guide to getting ahead in life, love, and leadership—Broadway style! Before Tim Federle became a beloved author (his award-winning novels include Better Nate Than Ever, which Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda declared as “highly recommended” in the New York Times), Federle worked in the showbiz trenches as a Christina Aguilera back-up dancer, Radio City Polar bear, and card-carrying chorus boy on Broadway. Along the way, he discovered that the hard-earned lessons he was learning onstage could be applied to his life, too. Life Is Like a Musical features fifty tips and anecdotes, with chapters such as “Let Someone Else Take a Bow,” “Dance Like Everyone’s Watching,” and “Save the Drama for the Stage.” This charming and clever guide will appeal to all ages and inspire listeners to remember that they are the stars of their own life story.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] hilarious self-help book…chock-full of common sense advice on how to ‘adult’ when you’d prefer to be singing show tunes…Perfect for theater-focused teens, especially those who grew up on Federle’s Better Nate Than Ever and loved his young adult novel, The Great American Whatever." School Library Journal
“Delightful…Can be applied to all aspects of life and contribute to helping readers build more successful futures…An intuitive guide that puts life into perspective in humorous and entertaining fashion.” Publishers Weekly
“Theater lovers will enjoy the peek behind the curtain of the industry, but this is valuable advice for all.” Booklist
“Hilarious, wise, and one-of-a-kind…So damn brilliant I’m surprised it didn’t already exist.” Sarah Knight, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck
