THERE IS NO BACKSTAGE is distinguished actor Linda Stephens' remarkable memoir of five decades in the theatre, and her debut as an engaging story-teller. She takes us on a journey of openness, humility and depth through her award-winning career until the book's poignant finale. Linda weaves a narrative of family, love, aging, hard work and hard-earned life lessons. It is an openhearted, remarkably honest look at what it means to dedicate your life to a profession that demands so much and can give back so little. Yet when it does give back, it can change lives forever. True to her title, there really is no backstage in this vulnerable, wise and compelling account of a full life lived on the stage.
