Based on Yankee’s highly successful one-man show, Diva Dish!, “Just Outside The Spotlight: Growing Up With Eileen Heckart” delves into the golden days of Broadway and Hollywood. This endearing memoir contains more than 65 photographs (many of which have never been seen before) and funny, heartfelt stories of celebrities.
