AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The story of Kevin Palmer's rise from a childhood spent in a boys' home, to traveling the globe with the biggest names in stage and screen, is an inspiration for anyone who has ever wanted to follow a dream. While at first he aspired to a career on the stage, it soon became apparent that it was behind the scenes where his real genius lay. Boys' Home to Broadway tells the inside story of his experiences with luminaries such as Sir Laurence Olivier, Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Nigel Hawthorn, Dame Judi Dench, Barry Humphries and Judy Davis.
