Michael Riedel is the theater columnist for The New York Post and co-host of Theater Talk on PBS. His first book, “Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway,” was a New York Times bestseller. He appears weekly on the Imus in the Morning program, and is a regular guest on Fox News’ “Red Eye,” The Mark Simone Show and The Mike Gallagher show. A graduate of Columbia University, he lives in New York City. His history of Broadway in the 1970s and ’80s paints a candid and thoroughly entertaining portrait of the period just after New York theater’s golden age. Money for artistic endeavors was scarce, and the city seemed adrift in economic and social turmoil. Broadway, Riedel argues, was both a beneficiary of and a critical factor in the city’s astonishing transformation in the following decades.
