Paul Ruditis Books Overview
Every performance needs a little scandal and…
DRAMA! Spawned from Hollywood’s A list glitterati, nearly every student at the exclusive Orion Academy is a singer, dancer, model, or actor with the ego to match. So how do you fit so many budding stars into one school musical? Multi cast, of course. It’s a Wizard of Oz like no other: four Dorothys, two Scarecrows, two Glindas, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Every ‘star’ gets a moment in the spotlight. Meanwhile, Bryan Stark, narrator extraordinaire, needs to shed some light on a more scandalous plot. Dorothys are mysteriously dropping out of the show, one after the other. If Bryan doesn’t figure out why, there may be no one left to click her heels by opening night…
School’s out, but the drama never stops at the superposh Orion Academy. Hartley Blackstone the famous director, producer, choreographer, and genuine Broadway icon has chosen Orion to hold auditions for one lucky guy and girl to attend his summer theater program in New York City. Naturally, every wannabe It girl and boy at Orion is going mad, prepping to win Blackstone’s approval. With any luck, it could be Bryan and his BFF, Sam, stepping onto a Broadway stage. But Mr. Blackstone, known for his notoriously harsh critiques, is capable of crushing hearts and shattering dreams with a single word. Bryan will need more than his snarky wit and cute smile for this one. He’s got to bring it! Now if he could just figure out exactly what it is…
needs a little scandal and…
The Renaissance Faire has come to town! Okay, so the exclamation point doesn’t make it any cooler, but Sam is overjoyed to reunite with her former faire folk say that ten times fast. Bryan, on the other hand, can do without all the ‘thees,’ ‘thous,’ and oh yes man tights. But he’d best take part in the festivities lest he lose his head…
with Sam doing the chopping.
As if that weren’t dramatic enough, someone has discovered Bryan’s not so closeted secret. And it might be time for Bryan to step of the role he’s been playing for years. It’s a Malibu drama geek stuck with a wannabe King Arthur’s dork…
er, court, and he’s got a major secret to tell. You don’t want to miss the show…
It’s time for the Fall One Act Festival, and Hope gets the honored privilege of debuting her very first original play! With Bryan directing and Jason and Sam as the leads, it seems as if nothing could go wrong with this dream team of talent. But where’s the fun in that? Enter Sam and Jason’s onstage chemistry that’s so hot, it’s working overtime offstage! Course, Sam’s real life beau, Eric isn’t so cool with that. And what about Bryan? With his sexual orientation public knowledge, he’s gaining some admiring attention from the most unexpected people. Can you blame them? With all these raging hormones, it’ll be a wonder if the play goes off at all. And the after party? Please that’ll be a show all in itself…

As if to spite the pollsters and talking heads, the frank and brilliant former governor, Jed Bartlet, captures the White House to become President of the United States. Surrounding himself with the best and the brightest, the president chooses his staff from the team responsible for putting him in the White House. Leo McGarry, the president’s oldest friend and the man who convinces Bartlet to run is named chief of staff. One of the most powerful men in his party, Leo presides over the West Wing of the White House with a firm hand and a fatherly tone. With uncanny prescience, Leo puts his faith in Toby Ziegler, the only original staff member to make it through the campaign. Despite six previous failures, Toby’s work along with a new team of friends and strangers, helps get Bartlet nominated and elected. Now, as the communications director for the White House, Toby holds an important role in crafting the president’s word. Using the power instilled in him as an old family friend, Leo McGarry brings Josh Lyman to the campaign with a simple request to come hear Jed Bartlet speak. In a VFW hall in Nashua, New Hampshire, the skeptical Josh does come and is amazed to finally find a candidate to believe in. Convinced that the man should be president, Lyman gets his friend Sam Seaborn to quit his job at a major law firm where he is about to become a partner and join Bartlet’s campaign. Gladly serving at the pleasure of President Bartlet, Sam is now the White House deputy communications director and his friend Josh is the deputy chief of staff. Two men from different backgrounds from opposite ends of thecountry are united not just by friendship but by their devotion to the president. ‘Is Jed Bartlet a good man?’ is all that C.J.

With a staff of more than 1,100 people, the West Wing overflows with offices and personnel. Although the upper echelon provides the very public face of the White House, a support staff of hundreds regularly carries out the duties of the executive branch of the government. Filling these desks are numerous aides and assistants, like Donna Moss, who started working for Josh Lyman during the nomination campaign and is now ‘deputy deputy chief of staff.’ Among her many responsibilities is to make sure that her boss is on time for meetings and fully prepared which sometimes means making sure that he is dressed. While the White House is very much a public institution, there is one man in particular whose job requires him to be either an imposing figure or totally invisible, often at the same time. Charlie Young, personal aide to the president, truly determines who has access. Among the many tasks laid out before this brilliant young man, he is first and foremost the keeper of the schedule. These people, and a staff of hundreds more, lead America from the most privileged office in the world, from inside THE WEST WING Step inside the Bartlet Administration in this richly detailed, perfectly imagined official companion to television’s most sophisticated dramatic series, ‘TheWest Wing.
