What took you so long to get here?
Where have you been all my life?
I’ll tell you where I’ve been.  

I’ve been in show business!

Ever since I was a little kid and heard Pinocchio singing, “Hey, diddly-dee, an actor’s life for me,” that’s what I wanted. Well, not to be an actor. 
I got tired of that during my freshman year in college.

So, what to do, what to do. . .

After many years as a Hollywood press agent, I became a writer…movies, stage plays, books.  
Anything that was a challenge.  I love telling stories.

After all, with due respect to actors, directors and other artists, isn’t the only truly creative aspect of the performing arts the written word?     
Everything else is “interpretation”.

On this site you will find links to my many stage plays that are available for licensing, listings of my books that are available for purchasing, some of my screenplays that are available for optioning, plus my blog that will keep you apprised of my various on-going activities and we can get to know each other, maybe too well.

If you’re into DVDs, take a look at my monthly newsletter, BEST BETS ON DVD.

Also, if you have a story that you want told, either in screenplay or book form, I am still a writer-for-hire.  Have Mac-Will Write.

So, please sign the guest book and share your thoughts and comments on my blog.  But, let’s play nice!

Don’t be such a stranger.  Keep coming back!

PETER LORRE on Audio

by Michael B. Druxman on 12/05/20

December 5, 2020

The audio edition of my one-person play,  PETER LORRE,  is now available for download on Amazon, iTunes and audible.com.

Bill Schafer brings Peter Lorre to life in the production, which is enhanced with music and sound effects.

CHRISTOPHER LEE

by Michael B. Druxman on 11/21/20

November 21, 2020

About a week ago, CHRISTOPHER LEE, the latest play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS Collection, became available in both paperback and Kindle editions on Amazon and elsewhere.

Christopher Lee lived in Los Angeles during the late 1970s-early 1980s, and for a time while he was there, I was his personal publicist.

He was a charming man; quite unlike his screen image.

I hopy you get an opportunity to read my one-person play about him.

ABE VIGODA

by Michael B. Druxman on 10/19/20

I am pleased to announce ABE VIGODA, the 32nd play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS Collection.

Aside from being my long time publicity client, ABE VIGODA was a good friend. I knew him from the very early days of "Barney Miller" through the rest of his life.

As with most people, I first became aware of Abe when he played "Tessio" in THE GODFATHER. He was a 50-year-old (unknown) actor when he made that now classic film, who had been working on stage and in television for well over 25 years.

Instant stardom!

As you might imagine, ABE VIGODA is a rather special play for me. It's available in paperback and Kindle editions via Amazon.

Production rights are available.
