May 14, 2015 - The Colors of a Life by Chris Byrne, Gay City News

"''Required summer reading for theater lovers has arrived. It's You Fascinate Me So, Andy Propst s biography of composer Cy Coleman, who wrote 11 Broadway shows over his career including Sweet Charity, On The Twentieth Century (now getting a wonderful revival at the Roundabout), I Love My Wife, The Life, Barnum, and Will Rogers Follies. . . . Propst's meticulously crafted and highly accessible book reads both as the portrait of an artist and an insightful study of just how mercurial and challenging Broadway musicals and the music business have been in the past century. . . . Coleman's life was indeed rich, and in addition to his Broadway work, he scored films, performed live, and was even a TV personality in the medium's earliest days. All of this is wonderfully captured in Propst's biography, which beyond the fascinating story is an important contribution to theater history.''

''A juicy new biography...Propst writes so well that his accounts of Coleman shows that didn t make it to Broadway i.e., a tantalizing collaboration with New York Times columnist Russell Baker are as interesting as the tales of the composer's hits.''
