About the Book

Cindy and Dave Knight got married too young. Several years later they are trying to make the best of it. He is a salesman on the fast track with a prestigious corporation. She is the indispensable assistant to a prominent Broadway producer. They own an apartment in Manhattan and enjoy knocking around the city together. However, Dave’s erratic behavior and career obsession strain the relationship. Can it be saved?


My Review

Off Broadway:  A Marriage Drama Looks at Life's Dramas Too. As Cindy and Dave try to navigate married life--they must also navigate a number of outside factors, influences and stressors. From outside factors like stressful, demanding careers, co-workers, & family members--to battling themselves and some personal issues and character flaws--the author brings a variety of dramatic woes to the scenes of this book.  Maintaining a successful marriage is certainly a challenging aspect as life throws "drama" into the mix at so many turns.  Off Broadway:  A Marriage Drama takes a look at many of the more adult themed factors and vices that couples may face.  

Readers may Find Pieces of the Book Relatable.  While I could certainly see some of the book's themes carry from the 80's to present day (career stressors, adultery, alcohol abuse, etc), I had a difficult time connecting to the main characters--especially Cindy.  Cindy's responses to some of her life dramas were certainly not my responses 30-35 years later. I am not sure if I had a time period disconnect--or if the author's portrayal of Cindy held too much "male voice" for my liking.

Would I Recommend Off Broadway:  A Marriage Drama by William A. Glass?  I enjoyed the pace of the novel and the real-world issues that the author tossed into the plot along the way.  I didn't love the characters--but, their stories played out well together.  It is a drama that deals with adult themed issues--but, not in overdone or graphic ways. If you enjoy family and marriage dramas this one offers some relatable issues that continue to press couples decades later.
