Patty Grubman is becoming a box office name on Broadway at 24, but from the other side of the footlights. She co-produced the long-running Bob Fosse musical Dancin' and this season's stunner Bent—the drama about homosexuals in a Nazi concentration camp starring Richard Gere. Grubman has also been involved in one major floperoo: a musical adaptation of the Alan Bates cult film King of Hearts, which closed after six weeks last year with a loss of more than $1.5 million. Still, Bent's success has enabled Grubman to open up her own production office in Manhattan. The daughter of an L.A. paper goods manufacturer and a housewife, Patty graduated from Beverly Hills High at 16 ("All my friends were children of celebrities") and went to nine colleges before dropping out for good—"short about one class for a degree." Grubman was broken in on Broadway by family friend Nan Pearlman, associate producer of Godspell and The Magic Show. A producer doesn't necessarily have to be rich, and indeed one of Grubman's primary responsibilities is cajoling money from "angels." When she isn't reading scripts, Patty plays racquetball or hops a plane for Aspen, where she bought a house. Ultimately Grubman wants to make it as a movie producer too—but never as a performer. "I hate being in front of crowds," she shudders. "I'd shake to death."
