Widely acknowledged as one of the most significant figures of the Australian theatre in the twentieth century, Livermore has enjoyed a career spanning more than fifty years; in his time on stage, on television and in life, he provides an important link with performers and performances during that evolutionary period. "Chapters & Chances" is more than just a personal memoir of a life lived in public; it offers a valuable perspective on Australian theatrical history, from the ground-breaking era of Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show to Livermore's legendary one-man shows to his stints on commercial television on variety shows such as I'm Alright Now. Livermore's journey in the theatre has been phenomenal, and his achievements unique - it is hard to imagine such a career as his being constructed these days. "Chapters & Chances" is a chronicle and a celebration of a time of extraordinary ferment in Australian arts.
