Evidently, while this hilarious little summit to save Broadway was taking place at the mock Sardi's, I was down 44th Street at Angus McIndoe, still coming down from the second-to-last performance of Gypsy.
Here, the Phantom is played with relish by "Saturday Night Live" regular Jason Sudeikis, who happens to be the scion of my longtime friends Kathy and Dan from Kansas City. To say they're proud of their talented son would be an enormous understatement. I can't help but wonder if Jason will ever consider following his real-life uncle onto Broadway's boards.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
