Television 'Angels' by Michael Riedel

Reidel talks about ANGELS IN AMERICA coming to HBO, and that is interesting to those who are not up on theatre news, but even better is Classic Reidel:

    Gabriel's brother, by the way, is Jesse McKinley, who writes a theater column for that rag, The New York Times.
I love it. And then Michael mentions the impact of the economic downturn on Broadway. Hmmmm....

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

SHAMELESS PLUG DEPT.:, a Show Tunes Weblog written by yours truly, will be participating in a 24-hour "blogathon" for charity this weekend. I will be writing and posting one new entry to my website every half hour from 12 noon on Saturday until 12 noon on Sunday (Pacific Time). I'm raising money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and I'm proud to count as one of my sponsors. There's still time to donate. But don't forget, you don't need a special occasion to donate to BC/EFA. Just send them money any time you feel like it. Or even when you don't!
