Simply entitled Céline, this is the long-awaited, authorized biography of Céline Dion, the rags-to-riches story of a woman who has become the leading recording artist in the world.
First published in French in Quebec in December 1997, Céline has sold in excess of 120,000 copies in Quebec alone. A French-language edition will be released in France this fall, to coincide with the release of a new French album.
Céline Dion is one of the world's best-loved and best-selling recording artists; her singles and albums have topped the international charts for several years. Her awards include numerous Junos, Grammys, and World Music Awards. Her most recent album, Let's Talk About Love, has already sold over 25 million units world-wide since its release in November 1997. The song "My Heart Will Go On" from the box-office record-setting film Titanic is now the most frequently heard single in the history of American radio.
Céline is the story of Céline Dion, her family, and her husband; it is the story of a child, with thirteen siblings, from a lower middle-class family, who grew up to achieve the status of pop icon and global diva. Along the way, she garnered the respect of some of the top people in the music industry, such as David Foster, Barbra Streisand, Luciano Pavarotti, and Sir George Martin.
Germain gives the reader the full story of how René Angélil became Céline's manager and, eventually, her husband. He also tells how René brought Céline to the status of pop icon in Quebec and then worked to help her achieve the same status on a global level.
The competitive world of the contemporary music industry is revealed how the deals are put together, how the marketing machinery is motivated, and how songs come to be chosen and produced. Making it to the top demands talent certainly, but also overriding ambition, good luck, and marketing savvy.
Céline is also a close-up of American popular culture, and the impact it has around the world. The book shows how a singing sensation becomes the guest of prime ministers, presidents, and sultans.
All of the songs in the Prohibition-era comedy now at the Music Circus come from songwriting giants George and Ira Gershwin, which gives the show a hefty content edge besides its raison d’être. The songs come from across the Gershwins’ early 20th-century career, including the Fred Astaire films “A Damsel In Distress” (1937) and “Shall We Dance” (1937), their Broadway entries “Lady Be Good” (1924), “Girl Crazy” (1930) and “Oh, Kay. Beyond the title song, the score includes American Songbook classics “S’Wonderful,” Fascinating Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over me” and “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off. Besides the Gershwin score, there are many special pieces to the production. Choreographer Michael Lichtefeld has a field day with the music’s jazzy syncopation in the music, and the vitality of his dances continually splashes across the stage. Musical director Craig Barna and the orchestra are also in top form, expertly rendering George Gershwin’s supple melodicism and complexity. There are several other song and dance pieces that similarly lift off, even though they don’t necessarily connect much to each other. Performances are stellar led by Matt Loehr as the well-heeled mama’s boy playboy Jimmy Winter and Kristie Kerwin as the tomboy tough girl bootlegger Billie Bendix. Both are strong-voiced tap-dancing dynamos. The cast also features standouts Holly Ann Butler as saloon cutie Jeanie Muldoon, Mark Bradley Miller as bootlegger strong man Duke Mahoney, and Rich Hebert (just at B Street in “Clever Little Lies”) as sensitive policeman Chief Berry. The well-known area actress Jamie Jones takes delightful charge in the late stages of the play as Jimmy’s mother Millicent Winter. As the bootlegger Cookie McGee who ends up as Jimmy’s butler, Kostroff (television’s ‘The Wire”) is a wonder of reactive facial expressions and slicing deadpan rejoinders. While the farcical plot simply gives the songs a place to be the audience especially enjoyed the play’s comic skewering of politicians and the so called qualifications needed to be one.

Musicals of the 1990s felt the impact of key developments that forever changed the landscape of Broadway. While the onslaught of British imports slowed down, the so-called Disneyfication of Broadway began, a trend that continues today. Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King became long-running hits, followed by more family-friendly musicals. The decade was also distinguished by a new look at revivals—instead of slavishly reproducing old shows or updating them with campy values, Broadway saw a stream of fresh and sometimes provocative reinventions, including major productions of My Fair Lady, Damn Yankees, Carousel, Show Boat, and Chicago. In The Complete Book of 1990s Broadway Musicals, Dan Dietz examines in detail every musical that opened on Broadway during the 1990s. This book discusses the era’s major hits (Miss Saigon, Crazy for You, Rent), notorious flops (Shogun, Nick & Nora, The Red Shoes), controversial shows (Passion, The Capeman), and musicals that closed during their pre-Broadway tryouts (Annie 2: Miss Hannigan’s Revenge, Whistle Down the Wind). In addition to including every hit and flop that debuted during the decade, this book highlights revivals and personal-appearance revues with such performers as Sandra Bernhard, Michael Feinstein, Patti LuPone, Liza Minnelli, and Mandy Patinkin. Each entry contains the following information: Plot summary Cast members Names of all important personnel, including writers, composers, directors, choreographers, producers, and musical directors Opening and closing dates Number of performances Critical commentary Musical numbers and the performers who introduced the songs Production data, including information about tryouts Source material Tony awards and nominations Details about London and other foreign productions Besides separate entries for each production, the book offers numerous appendixes, including a discography, filmography, and published scripts, as well as lists of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, black-themed shows, and Jewish-themed productions. A treasure trove of information, The Complete Book of 1990s Broadway Musicals provides a comprehensive view of each show. This significant resource will be of use to scholars, historians, and casual fans of one of the greatest decades in musical theatre history.
