John LahrShow People and Their Shows

John Lahr, the author of eighteen books, including the multiple award-winning biography Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, was the senior drama critic of The New Yorker for over two decades. He has twice won the George Jean Nathan Award for Dramatic Criticism and is the first critic ever to win a Tony Award for coauthoring the 2002 play Elaine Stritch at Liberty. Lahr discusses his new book Joy Ride: Show People and Their Shows, a collection of biographical detail and critical analysis which explores with insight and panache not only the lives of the theatricals but the liveliness of the stage worlds they have created.
