Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein
Sponsored by TheaterZone, Dr. Barrett Ross Ginsberg and Steinway Piano Gallery
The oldest daughter of revered composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth in a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir. In Famous Father Girl, Bernstein mines the emotional depths of her childhood, and invites us inter her family’s private world. A fantastic set of characters populates the Bernsteins’ lives, including the Kennedys, John Lennon, Mike Nichols, Jerome Robbins, Richard Avedon, Stephen Sondheim and Lauren Bacall.
