MY DAD’S GF IS AT A PARTY WITH LEA MICHELE AND SHE JUST SENT ME THIS PICTURE
At this rate, Lea Michele will soon have a résumé to rival that of Rachel Berry, the overachieving student and aspiring theater star she plays on “Glee.” The latest addition to the to-do list of Ms. Michele, a star of the Fox musical comedy-drama, is a book that she will write for the Harmony Books imprint of Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, the publisher said Thursday.
Ms. Michele’s book,titled “Brunette Ambition” and planned for publication next spring, is described in a news release as a “part memoir, part how-to and part style-guide” that chronicles its author “from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television.” The release said the book would offer a “behind-the-scenes perspective” from Ms. Michele, who has also appeared on Broadway in “Spring Awakening,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Ragtime” and “Les Misérables,” as well as her “practical advice and lessons” for young women who hope to follow in her footsteps.
Ms. Michele said in a statement: “There wasn’t a guidebook when I was growing up, that detailed everything I would need to do, and know, to get where I am today. But I believe I can write one of sorts: not a how-to-make-it-in-show-business book, but a guide to harnessing tenacity, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work to make your dreams come true.”
At the very least, we expect it to have a blurb from Rachel Berry’s personal heroine Patti LuPone.
