Synopsis

The most celebrated "voice" in Hollywood speaks for herself!


Everyone knows Marni Nixon...even if they think they don’t. One of the best-known and best-loved singing voices in the world, Nixon dubbed songs for Natalie Wood in West Side Story, Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, and Deborah Kerr in The King and I. She was the voice of Hollywood’s leading ladies, arriving in filmland after a debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 17 and continuing her career with Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives, Stephen Sondheim, Rogers and Hammerstein, and many others. Her inspiring autobiography reveals Nixon as a singer, an actress, and a woman fighting for artistic recognition. Today, a survivor of breast cancer, she works on Broadway and television’s Law & Order SVU, tours with her own stage show, and teaches master classes in voice. I Could Have Sung All Night reveals the woman behind the screen in a frank, funny biography that is as remarkable as the woman whose story it tells.

Despite Nixon's career and personal resurrection — she survived two bouts with cancer — her book stalls with many dull audition stories.
