Description

From the star of Broadway's The Book of Mormon and HBO's Girls, the heartfelt and hilarious coming-of-age memoir of a Midwestern boy surviving bad auditions, bad relationships, and some really bad highlights as he chases his dreams in New York City.

When Andrew Rannells left Nebraska for New York City in 1997, he, like many young hopefuls, saw the city as a chance to break free. To start over. To transform the fiercely ambitious but sexually confused teenager he saw in the mirror into the Broadway leading man of his dreams. 

In Too Much Is Not Enough, Rannells takes us on the journey of a 20-something hungry to experience everything New York has to offer: new friends, wild nights, great art, standing ovations. At the heart of his hunger lies a powerful drive to reconcile the boy he was when he left Omaha with the man he desperately wants to be.

As Rannells fumbles his way towards the Great White Way, he also shares the drama of failed auditions and behind-the-curtain romances, the heartbreak of losing his father at the height of his struggle, and the exhilaration of making his Broadway debut in Hairspray at the age of 26. Along the way, he learns that you never really leave your past - or your family - behind; that the most painful, and perversely motivating, jobs are the ones you almost get; and that sometimes, the most memorable nights with friends are marked not by the trendy club you danced at but by the recap over diner food afterward.

Honest and hilarious, Too Much Is Not Enough is an unforgettable look at love, loss, and the powerful forces that determine who we become.

Funny. Relatable. Inspiring. Also brutally honest.

This book was a 10/10 for me. Andrew Rannells lives a totally different life than I do, but is oh so relatable. I think everyone could connect to the stories in this book in some way. I related to so many of his stories that I felt like I was listening to my own thoughts at times, ha!

The way Rannells tells stories is hilarious, honest and sometimes... heartbreaking. I thoroughly enjoyed this seven hour journey and I feel inspired to put in hard work and follow my dreams after listening - as cheesy as that sounds. I HIGHLY recommend this audiobook!

Love This Kid!

I've loved this kid ever since he graced stages 20 years ago, although I've never been lucky enough to see an in-person performance. I'm just a proud Nevada mom and thoroughly enjoyed this book!!! Wow, how does one survive the path he chose? Luckily, he was grounded thanks to his parents and family values, but he was brave. And now 20 years later, he's still going strong. Thank you, Andrew. Our family, too, wanted to see dad in several outfits, but completely baffled the staff because dad would be cremated. xoxo

Fantastic, must read book!

I loved every moment of this book. I recognized myself in many of his life moments even though I am a 58 year old straight woman. Aren't we all just fumbling toward adulthood? I laughed out loud and cried during this book. It is hilarious and poignant at the same time. Andrew Rannells is a great author and I need a sequel ASAP.

This book is delightful!

I’ve been an Andrew Rannells fan since Book of Mormon and many of my favorite moments have come watching him be himself on talk shows. This book is so funny, so sweet, so honest and so self-aware that I understand why he makes such a great interview subject. Listen to this performance of this book. It is brilliant.

Great Perspective on the Journey to Success

Andrew Rannells, with humor and wit, shares his journey of getting to where he's gotten. What's interesting about the book is his focus on the harder, more challenging times prior to his fame. In fact, successes like The Book of Mormon and "Girls" barely get a mention. No, this book is more about the grit and determination, the highs and lows (a lot of lows), the mistakes, the not-quite-breaks, and the frustration and hard work it took to get where he currently is.

I really enjoyed the book and the theme that fame and fortune didn't just happen to Rannells; that he worked very hard and sweated and toiled to achieve his dreams.

He performs the book very well with humor and charm.

A Rannells fan

Listen, I love Andrew Rannells and his humor, so this book was a must for me. I love that he doesn't focus on his famous years, instead giving us all the work and effort that went into getting him there. As a young guy that just moved to the city there's a lot of stuff here to learn from.
