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 arrived in New York City from Omaha in 1997, he, like many, 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 twentysomething hungry to experience everything: new friends, wild nights, great art, standing ovations. And at the heart of his hunger lies a powerful drive to reconcile the boy he was and the man he might have been with the man he wants to be. As Rannells reveals how he merged these Andrews into the one who made his Broadway debut at 26, he also shares stories from his path to the ...

Too Much Is Not Enough Reviews
I'm a huge fan of Andrew Rannells, so I was super excited when I heard he had a book coming out. There are a ton of great elements to this memoir - honesty, humor, heart. Rannells does a great job recounting tales from his youth (everything from a disastrous relationship with an older man to his many failed auditions). I really felt like I got to know him as he struggled to become successful in the Broadway world. My only complaint about this book is that it felt like it ended right before the p ...more
All the stars for a star!
This was absolutely EVERYTHING a memoir should be.
Andrew Rannaells grew up in Omaha, far from the glittering lights of Broadway, but he always felt he was meant for the stage. He felt a pull for a life outside of Nebraska and throwing caution to the wind, made that happen for himself.
This witty and candid memoir follows Rannells from his early days of community theater, through his first days in NYC, his attempt at college, friendships, turbulent relationships, success ...more
As a Broadway junkie, I am a huge fan of Andrew Rannells; he has a natural charisma and acerbic sense of humour, which is always apparent on his hilarious late night talk show appearances and also in his latest memoir Too Much is Not Enough.
I would recommend listening to the audiobook because Rannells’ delivery is quite funny. He has many stories to tell, and the memoir comes alive especially in the sections where he is recounting his behind-the-scenes stage exploits.
Utterly delightful - if you are a fan of Andrew or of Broadway or frankly are just a Midwesterner curious of what life is like trying to succeed in the big city - pick this up when it comes out in March 2019!!!
I’ve been a fan of Andrew since hearing the Book of Mormon for the first time but I never knew much about where he was from or who he really was and now honestly, I feel like we’re friends. I know we’re not obviously but I feel like if I bumped into him somewhere I could say hi and ask ab ...more
!! NOW AVAILABLE !!
I haven’t seen Andrew Rannells performance in The Book of Mormon or anything else, for that matter, didn’t know who he was until I read this, or read about this, so when I was offered an advanced copy of his memoir Too Much is Not Enough I hesitated just long enough to find out a few minor details that made me curious enough to accept the offer, and I’m happy that I did.
Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska – not exactly a small town in the middle of nowhere, but not exa ...more
I wouldn't say I was a super fan of Mr. Rannells - I haven't seen any of the roles he's most known for, and have largely just enjoyed his appearances on late night TV (... and the PBS broadcast of his Broadway show, 'Falsettos'). That said, I have always found him personable and very funny, and these are exactly the qualities he brings to this short volume of memoirs. Any person who has ever contemplated working amidst the bright lights of Broadway (guilty!) will recognize and sympathize with th ...more
one time i saw andrew rannells leaving his house (or a friend’s house?) in Chelsea and get into a car. i didn’t say anything to him cuz this is NYC, but that’s neither here nor there. at that point i’d only seen him on Girls but he had a vibe i appreciated.
i started and finished this book in a day, his writing is great, like he’s your self-aware, self-deprecating, funny friend. as a midwesterner who also moved to NY, i can relate to a lot of this book, and i died laughing at his descriptions of ...more
I loved this book so much. It was hysterical, heart-warming, and at times almost TOO relatable. I wish I had met the author back in the 90’s when we were both brand new to NYC. We might have been at the Limelight on the exact same night, screaming “I can’t believe this used to be a church!” We would’ve been great friends.
