Tony Roberts – Do You Know Me?


This book is an anecdotal memoir spanning Tony Roberts’ 55 years as a professional actor. During that time, Roberts has appeared in 23 Broadway shows, 25 films, three television series, and recorded numerous audiobooks and voice-over commercials. He explores the sources of his ambition and describes the ups and downs of a career in show business. While not a “how-to” book, it provides the inspirational guidance taught by one of America’s greatest acting teachers: Alvina Krause. Oh, there’s also a lot of stuff about Woody Allen and other people you’ve probably heard of.

Roberts has been in six films for Allen and five Broadway hits for David Merrick. He has been nominated twice for a Tony Award and was the winner of the London Critics Poll Award for his performance in the hit Promises, Promises in the West End. His other Broadway credits include The Royal Family; Xanadu; The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife; Cabaret; Victor/Victoria; Jerome Robbins’ Broadway; They’re Playing Our Song; Absurd Person Singular; Arsenic and Old Lace; Sugar; How Now, Dow Jones; Barefoot in the Park; and a dozen others. He appeared on screen in the Academy Award-winning Annie Hall, and in Play It Again, Sam; Serpico; The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3; Amityville 3D; Radio Days; 18 Again; Star Spangled Girl; Switch; and many others. His television output includes Arthur Miller’s The American Clock, Saul Bellow’s Seize the Day, and his own series for NBC, Rosetti & Ryan. Mr. Roberts has recorded more than 50 audiobooks, including the popular Stuart Woods detective series featuring Stone Barrington. A New Yorker by birth, he graduated from The High School of Music & Art, and Northwestern University.
