Michael Blakemore is a brilliant director ,so it is a bit unfair that he is also such an entertaining writer . If you are are a lover of theatre, then I recommend all of his writings. This is a work of fiction ,based upon real life events.

I don’t believe I missed any of the plays Michael Blakemore directed in London up to 1980, but I never realized he had written a juicy bildungsroman about his earlier days as a journeyman actor, “Next Season.” Now that I have caught up with it, I realize it is as revealing a depiction of theater life as the Michael Frayn farce Blakemore directed, “Noises Off.” Aside from the guilty pleasure of trying to identify the prototypes for the book’s main characters from Blakemore’s associates and collaborators (Laurence Olivier as the aging tragedian? Vanessa Redgrave as the ingénue who can’t miss? Peter Hall as the manipulative young impresario?), “Next Season” is an instruction manual for how a young actor should bide his time and how a director should assemble ideas from every source to create a play’s world. As a romance—and there is plenty of that!—the book falls short of engrossing, and the payoff is a little less than surprising, but in every other respect it’s hard to put down.

I had been given a copy of Michael Blakemore's novel, "Next Season" by my best friend...a fellow actor, as an opening night gift on the eve of my debut as Max Prince in Neil Simon's "Laughter on the 23rd Floor". My rehearsal process had been a stressful and confusing one - professionally and personally. As I thankfully landed with success on opening night, I avoided all of the festive pageantry and retreated to my room, hopped into bed and opened "Next Season". I was fully engaged from the first line. My post performance exhaustion was warmly soothed, all personal drama evaporated and I was swept up in an endless smile. As I devoured the entire book in one night my mind soared, and my yellow highlighter got a workout, underscoring the endless streams of insightful observations, humorous experiences and creative concepts that spoke so clearly to me and my life. This is what I do. This is about me. This is about all of us. Actors. I related easily to it all – yet up to this point in my life I had never read anything that had come close to putting it all together with such wit and honesty. How wonderful to find a novel that so clearly humanizes artists and reveals to perfection the craft of being an actor. I have re-read this book several times, and I give it as a gift frequently - to actors and audience members. I am ordering one today for my new friend ... on the eve of our opening night - the world premiere of “Just So.” I am confident he will find the same joy in reading "Next Season" and sharing it's wealth and beauty for years to come.

I'm sure it was good book in it's day but, as the grease paint it often talks about, it seems not to have stood the test of time.
