Overview

Carl Moellenberg's story is one of overcoming enormous obstacles and changing course to find his passion and his true self to live joyously as a long-term survivor. It is a journey of many transformations: from Midwestern boy most interested in music to a fast-paced Wall Street career; from investment banking to a 13-time Tony Award-winner on Broadway; from overcoming several death-defying crises by finding healing, and inspiration from a higher being, and deeper spirituality. Carl hopes that his story will inspire others who face seemingly overwhelming obstacles to find their passion, their reason to live, and to find love.

Reading his beautiful book has touched me deeply." —Barbara Manocherian, President of New York Stage and Film

"Carl's story is one of finding profound passion in storytelling and bringing those stories to life. His memoir is searingly honest about his health struggles, but what stands out is how these challenges have consistently inspired him to live a fuller life; connect more deeply with people and work with the best artists to help deliver their vision. It's a lesson in defining one's life not by its challenges but by what - and who we love." —Tim Levy, Broadway and London Theater Producer
