Ghost light: a memoir.


Rich, Frank


Program air date: December 10, 2000


Rich grew up in the small-townish Washington, D.C., of the 1950s and early '60s, a place where conformity seemed the key to happiness for a young boy who alwasys felt different. When Rich was seven years old, his parents separated. Bouncing from school to school and increasingly lonely, Rich became terrified of the dark and the uncertainty of his future. But there was one thing in his life that made him sublimely happy; the Broadway theater. -- Jacket.
