In the 1970s, interest in live theater hit an all-time low and Broadway's dilapidated theaters almost turned out the lights for good. The whole story is chronicled in a new book, "Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway," published by Simon and Schuster, a division of CBS. Michael Riedel, the author of the book and New York Post's theater columnist, joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the revival of Broadway.

Razzle Dazzle is a provocative, no-holds-barred narrative account of the people and the money and the power that re-invented an iconic quarter of New York City, turning its gritty back alleys and sex-shops into the glitzy, dazzling Great White Way—and bringing a crippled New York from the brink of bankruptcy to its glittering glory.
