"An utterly charming and thoroughly entertaining memoir that draws back the curtain on many famous and infamous Broadway shows through the eyes and thanks to the chutzpah of a budding actor and critic who never met a stage doorman he couldn't schmooze. If you've ever been a theater obsessed teenager, this book is for you. If you're a theater obsessed adult of a certain age this book will bring back many sweet memories and remind you of why you became a theater obsessed teenager." Nathan Lane

"I relished every word of "Up in the Cheap Seats" and tried to read it as s-l-o-w-l-y as possible, simply because I didn't want it to end. It's a must-read for anyone who has even a passing interest in the theatre. It should be required reading in theatre departments worldwide. I intend to buy several copies as gifts, as it is one of my all-times faves, right along with The Season, by William Goldman." Mark Hamill

"Theatre is a transient art, here and then gone, but in his enormously entertaining book UP IN THE CHEAP SEATS, Ron Fassler has made it a little more permanent. Both a moving coming of age memoir and a compulsively readable memoir of Broadway itself, UP IN THE CHEAP SEATS pays homage to the men and women who devote their lives to making great theatre." ​     - John Logan, Tony Award winning playwright (Red)
