Margaret Hall's Gemignani: Life and Lessons from Broadway and Beyond (Applause Books, 2022) is the definitive book on Broadway's greatest music director. From a youth playing in jazz bands to a storied career conducting Sunday in the Park with George, Sweeney Todd, Evita, and Into the Woods, Gemignani's life story provides a behind-the-scenes look at many of the pivotal moments in musical theatre history. The book also provides a vivid sense of Gemignani as a person: a warm, avuncular, yet passionately opinionated figure whom many Broadway legends rely on to make their shows come alive.
