Synopsis

A young actor from Italy and a wardrobe designer from Illinois find each other in New York City at a time when same gender marriages are not recognized by the law. Fed by a pure, unconditional love for one another, they merge souls and skills for a decade. Collecting great highs and deep lows, their life together revolves around 8-shows-a-week both on and off Broadway. A marriage that survives civic discriminations, cultural differences, immigration struggles, and HIV, ultimately finds an unexpected curtain call. "Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious!" -Joe DiPietro, two-time Tony Award-winning playwright "Beautiful, pure, deep and unfailing in its honesty. I read it straight through" -Jeanine Tesori, Tony Award-winning composer "A courageous tale of strength, will and the commitment of love and passion. Honest and real." -Tamya Gray, American Idol finalist and Broadway star "A beautiful accounting of love and loss at a time where there was not equal protection under the law." -Jennifer Simard, Tony Award nominee To learn more about the book, go to www.anewyorkwaytogo.com or visit www.facebook.com/anywtg or send email to Alessandroferdico@icloud.com
