Broadway is on a freakin' roll! Actually, it's not, I just wanted to see what it was like to lead off three consecutive news stories the same way. The fact of the matter is, Broadway is in freakin' trouble. A strike by Great White Way musicians which left most Broadway theaters dark over the weekend continues into its fourth day today. The dispute centers around producers' desire to cut the minimum size of orchestras from 26 to 15 players. The good news? The hysterical Off Broadway farce Zanna, Don't! is not affected by all this. The bad news? Neither is the dreadful (and disturbingly overrated) gay baseball satire Take Me Out.
