Once upon a time, there were two up-and-coming theater producers and avid readers in Manhattan. Over post-show cocktails at Sardi’s one evening, they bemoaned the lack of fun, theater-themed novels. They couldn’t believe that their creative and colorful world of theater was woefully devoid of equally creative and colorful books! A couple of cosmos later, Dress Circle Publishing was born. We look forward to celebrating the page and the stage with you!
