From Fox News' Entertainment 411 column:

Broadway Riddle

You know the story by now of the YouTube divorcee, Tricia Walsh Smith? Her husband is Phil Smith, who runs Broadway’s Shubert Organization. You’d think a certain theater writer would have been all over this scandal. Alas, he has not penned one word on the subject despite the story’s now international recognition. Why, you wonder? I’m told said writer has long held a position with “The Shuberts” in his sights, and didn’t want to do a thing to jeopardize that future. Now the national entertainment press — and not the local New York theater wag — can claim a New York story as their own.

I prefer Dunkin' Donuts. Krispy Kremes are disgusting.

OH, right, the thread subject! There's another thread discussing it from yesterday. Yes, it's him.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

He has discussed it.

He also said she should get the Special Event TONY this year.

I like the cream filled ones.

I love KRISPY KREME! I only had it once in my life back in 2003 when they opened in Everett, MA. We drove all the way there to get a free donuts! Love the sugar coated one--It was disgustingly good!

Actually, this same thread first appeared two days ago.... from RC in Austin, Texas
Fox 411 by Roger Friedman
"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

I wouldn't take half of what Roger Friedman says seriously anyway. He's just as bad as Riedel. Even after Brokeback Mountain broke the $100 million mark he called it a flop, so I really don't trust anything he says. I mean, does Riedel really think the Shuberts would ever hire him?

Have you ever met a medium-to-high level employee of the Shubert Org?

Brilliant they always are not.

The truly smart and/or ambitious ones don't stay. The longer an employee's tenure the more mediocre they are. There are exceptions, but then there is the rule of thumb.

Make no mistake, some are bright, but there is no such thing as a fast track job there, so the good catches leave.

Riedel would fit right in.
