The Page 1 editors of the NYTimes never cease to amaze me with enlightened choices. Most newspapers, no matter the content, would publish a theater story on the entertainment pages. Actors pushing against sexual harassment and violence in the theater is above the fold today in a story by Patrick Healy, a NYT reporter who covers the business aspect of show business very well.
NYTimes reporter Patrick Healy is my new favorite theater writer. It’s not just because of his A1 story today on “Duck Dynasty” planning to mount a Broadway musical, or the insightful Hugh Jackman profile Sunday or yesterday’s fascinating business story about “It’s Only a Play” offering producers of “The Audience” $400,000 not to evict them.
