Description
There is a superstition that if an emptied theater is ever left completely dark, a ghost will take up residence. To prevent this, a single "ghost light" is left burning at center stage after the audience and all of the actors and musicians have gone home. Frank Rich's eloquent and moving boyhood memoir reveals how theater itself became a ghost light and a beacon of security for a child finding his way in a tumultuous world.

A memoir in which the author recalls his lifelong fascination with the Broadway theater, an obsession fueled by the divorce of his parents when he was only seven, and tells how his love of the theater led to his first job as a ticket-taker at Washington's National Theatre, and a later career as a theater critic for "The New York Times.
