Prompt broadway in the nineties The ninety s That's post cats at post Les ms that whole thing the phantom yeah phantoms where i was going to go the ninety s pre pre like avenue. Q and all this rent is our. I'm socio A king mine king was after the nineties right now. that was nineties. What else where. Where are we going with it. How about rosie. O'donnell making broadway kind of her thing only very nineties phenomenon. Michael riedel longtime new york post theater columnist during your period. I loved reading that guy in the new york post because he was always writing something he has a new called singular sensation. The triumph of broadway which revisits the back stories of all these nineties musicals. You might call it. The restage ables If your for lack of a better term we got into those shows and his particular approach to covering the theater. Here's michael riedel. Michael you start writing theatre column for the daily news back in nineteen ninety-three is theater the beach you always wanted or did you just wind up there. I really wound up in up there. I didn't. I had no no plans to go to the theater. All i had no plans to go into journalism to be honest with you. I was a history major in college. And i was going to go to school. That was the big plan. But i wound up getting a summer job with the broadway producer. Elizabeth mccann. I really didn't know what a producer did at that point but she was doing this play from england on. I remember my first day on the job. She said this actor in the play His air conditioning unit was broken in the cheap apartment. She put them in so my job was to go fix the air conditioning. Unit was a history. Major columbia knows about air conditioning. I gotta screwdriver. And i walked over. In this very elongated man opened the doors hoods beasley halted neuron beast news kind of wiping the sleep out of his eyes and walk into the bedroom to fix the air conditioning. Noticed this attractive young ladies calf sticking out from under the covers of the bed and she of raised her head up and she said it was so hot neon someone wanting here and stuck the screwdriver into the air condition. Unit jiggled at around etiquette. Thank god and i left. The guys said he was beasley hot annetta elongated man was one alan rickman making his debut in years and the girl in his bed was the young the auditor to play with whom he was having an affair. That was my crash course into the theater but had a good time that summer working for liz mccann got to know a bit about how broadway functioned and people like the schubert's in the near landers which kind of planted the seed in my head. I guess years later for my first book razzle-dazzle and then out of college. I just happen to know someone at school. Who was taking a job editing. A theater magazine and He said he to be the managing editor. I'd never anything but a history paper but again it was interesting the first two days on the job. I think i had the pleasure of hanging out in interviewing julie. Stein the great broadway composer. And i got to meet people like seeing sondheim john fred ebb and it seemed to sort of a fun world to be in and i never i never got to law school. How'd you cover the differently than it had been covered before. I think it was. Because since i wasn't a huge theater fan i in the beginning got interested in the business out of it and i got to know the schubert's i got to know the neater. Landers i got snl the producers and i learned the economics of broadway and i was always kind of in where the real power was in the theater and i realized early on that you can have the best player in the world but if you don't have a place to put it no one's going to see it so the people who control business are the people who control the theaters in the real estate. That was the schubert's mainly the needle enders and over time. I just got close to jerry schoenfeld. Who is chairman of the schubert's jimmy near orlando who created that empire and they were old guys and they love telling me great old stories about the business and the struggles that they had. And so i really learned. I really learned all about the business from from those guys in smother producers sadly all these people are now dead. But i was fortunate that i was the repository of their vast knowledge of the of the theater. As i was getting to know them. I really never had any plants right volks either but i realized when jerry died in two thousand and eight or so i thought you and i'm pretty much only reporter around. Who knows all the stuff that these guys totally. 'cause they didn't talk to reporters they were pretty private. A were the background usually but for some reason they like me. So that's sort of how the ideas for the bucks king breath and you're going to write when you're doing a column you're going to be interested in not just theater is art. Which critics are interested in but at the has business theater is power struggle between artists and business that whole view. That was far more interesting to me than just being a critic and going to the theater and writing a little book report a main the job of a critic i find conduct bleak actually night after night sitting in the dark watching other people. Do things that you can't do and then sort of writing a little your little a term paper about it too boring..

Ooh i hate to say it but give tucker carlson A tennis racket and let him manage some like sweaty barrel chested in memphis in the eighties and that kid would have made millions of dollars upside for fox news personalities to recast them as just as like managers of wrestlers whose only job is to make the audience. Mad guess well. That's what a heel manager supposed to do. What a manager in general for the most part is supposed to do kind of naji here but part of this right is the ability to announce matches that you have to have the wrestlers fly through your table while you're announcing the match. Yes that's a deal with. I think a lot. Now i mean if you're ringside On some of the shows the tables sort of recessed back by the entry. Way but yeah. There is a lot of lot of wrestlers going through tables at pay per views. Such so Yeah there is the that is a real degree of difficulty situation Be really great man. I think important skill here would be the ability to pretend to be shocked by what you're seeing. Yeah which is kind of if you think about a kind of a news anchor skill. maybe not. They don't pretend as much but they have to have that kind of news. Anchor face relax. Oh wow we're rain. We've we've this is shocking developments on your screen right. That's essentially what a wrestling announced does. Yeah no you're right. It has to be someone with a little bit of that. It's it can be sort of like smug and even keeled right. I mean there's some people who'd be a little bit too just blase about the whole thing Yet you you have to be performative you gotta be able to be like yeah like you said you gotta like have be really excited and really feel betrayed for the audience.

We know what her nickname is.

Why Why was it up? 600 points? The Dow yesterday. It's hardly ever the correct reason when you know that by now, the you know the stock market finally have some competition from the bond market, so it started selling off like crazy the kind of year because people said For you, if you think about it for the last number of years, but especially on the last year.

Sordid details of Johnny Depp's private life made public
"I'm fascinated by this because I do think at one point. He was a very, very good actor Johnny Depp. And now his entire life has just fallen apart. What has happened to this man? Is it Is it booze and drugs? Well, it's losing throat. It's also though, in the view of Hollywood, and this time the Hollywood reporter, which is kind of the you know, the newspaper that covers the doings out there has a devastating story in this week, which basically says that he has become radioactive. You might recall it. Obviously back in the summer time. There was this lawsuit where he was suing a newspaper in the UK for saying that he was a wife beater. And in this trial, it was revealed just dozens of emails and horrible behavior that frankly backed up, but the you know what his ex wife and with the newspaper said, and the judge agreed not only to the judge agree that the newspaper that could script called him a wife beater. But they essentially prohibited to him from appealing this case. Meanwhile, he assuming his ex wife, Amber, heard in a court in Virginia that suits about to begin in January. A lot of the same stuff. That was found to be un supportable in the UK trial, so he's seen in Hollywood is just being insanely vengeful. Not to mention a drunk, a drug use or incredibly profligate spending millions upon millions of dollars and in this world now With me to, um, the idea of any Hollywood studio hiring a man who's been labeled a wife beater seems completely implausible. He had a small movie that was supposed to come out last month. At a film festival in Poland. He didn't turn up. The movie was withdrawn. He has a project that he was gonna be doing. Jerry Bruckheimer, huge Hollywood producer on the life of Harry Houdini. He apparently has been dropped from that. And this is a guy who you know has a lot of things and needs a lot of money. As you know his spending his ethics so without these kinds of did paydays God knows what's going to happen to stand still love him, probably. But the fact of the matter is Hollywood will not hire him. So their love is going to have to go back into the catalog and look at old movies. But I don't think anybody's gonna hire him for anything. New. So literally, Larry, Let me ask you when you were the editor of People magazine Back in the day when Johnny Depp was riding high, Did you Did your reporters pick up stuff about bad behavior? Craziness? Did you have any concerns about where that career was headed back when you have good things about him? Let me split that question into Yes. To the first part of the question. No to the second. Yes, we heard about the bad behavior. Look, he didn't make a secret of it right? He was in a rock band. He dressed like Keith Richards. He kind of he played Hunter Thompson. You know, he epically did a lot of drug this was all known about it. It was part of his charm in some degree crazy enough as it may seem, like all things in moderation that makes him charming. And look, we made him the sexy man. I think twice While I was the editor of the magazine, he was someone who then and arguably still might have a lot of appeal. But at a certain point, you know, when you're pushing 60 and you start and you continue to act like this, it's not charming and again when you look at what was accounted in that trial in the UK not only just the text messages using filthy text messages about his wife, written tip Hollywood agents and other colleagues. But the kind of litany of behavior throwing glasses, the bleeding the fights the cutting the screaming, You know, I counted to buy a lot of people, including people who worked for him. Quite frankly, it's impossible to deny. That this guy's personal life is a mess. Now. We don't watch him in movies, you know, thinking about his personal life, but in this world that we live in now it's increasingly difficult to separate that behavior from what appears on strings. Turning our

"Yeah occasionally but not not to the extent that rosie did it and you know she had a profound influence on the success of shows at one of my favorite shows from the nineties. Which i write about his more yesterday and peterson's titanic and that was a show that had a lot of trouble in previews and really really was struggling and got mixed reviews from the critics. Rosie went to see and she loved it and the next day she talked up on her show and then she brought the cast on to sing the stirring opening number and the box office quadrupled the next day. And that was a lifeline if you will to To titanic unfortunately for rosy she decided to produce her own show rafu which was a ten million dollars fiasco. That's not really in the book that was in the two thousand ever get a riding around by writing. Third installment of my of my history of broadway taboo will definitely be chapter because it was a wild time. We've me a remember speaking of friend and berry within their period when she was the cat in the hat ensue cicle. She was pretty hefty cat in the hat he certainly. Yeah now fran. And barry produced susan musical which was the ascalon broadway and they tried to save it by putting now rosie into a large catsuit. What real quickly before we go just looking ahead to the future again. Is it fair to say that. You're bullish on broadway post pandemic whenever that happened You know it's funny. I'm writing a piece for the wall street journal. Now that how broadway has overcome crises in the past including the great depression and You know the sixties and seventies when when times square was sleazy and the theaters were empty. I said being torn down. You know the aids broadway had its own pandemic in the eighties and aids in no one. When the mainstream mainstream america when heterosexual america was not pay much attention to aids. Many people on broadway were dying of it. Know and broadway had to come up with its own support system to help those people and it did with broadway cares equity fights aids and then of course september eleventh and how it went through that crises. This one is different. Because broadway's never been shut down this long And so much. This is really out of broadway's control because it's it's really about getting vaccine so that people feel safe going back to the theatre again so i do think i do think it will come back And i think when it comes back is very good at staging comebacks. They know how to bring the show biz excitement to the return of the great white way and i know they will do that brilliantly. It's just a question of when will they be able to do that. And i don't think anyone can answer that question right now. Yeah well hopefully something to look forward to and again. I just really adored this book. The stories are fantastic.

"Shows like cats and phantom and les miz. So you're two books. Focus on these. Two really highly productive periods in recent broadway history. How was new york theater in the nineties. Different from what preceded it you know. The ninety s was a time on broadway in this book takes place in the nineteen nineties when the theater really once again became a center of american popular culture in a way it had not been really since the golden age of the forties and fifties shows like rent and chicago angels in america the lion king producers. I mean those shows were as well known as big as any movie or television. Show of the era you know and they spawn productions that went all over the world so the nineties was a really a boom time for broadway and exciting time. A really exciting time. You had yet as a major major talents working in the theater. Julie taymor mel brooks nathan lane. Matthew broderick tony kushner like that. And i follow the nineties. A lot of art forms. They had that kind of that key. Decade or that kice period of time know the the golden age of of the of the broadway musical really is about fifteen twenty years are from and a world war two to the sixties when tastes changed. And you know you had the great era of hollywood in the thirties and forties and under studio system falls apart. But then you have a movie makers like francis ford coppola and About martin scorsese in those movie makers of the seventies that are transforming the business. So i thought. I could actually look at this decade on broadway. Where big big changes took place where disney came on the scene and corrupt a corrupt guy like garth trubisky who built this empire that was a total sham. He arrived really changed things. And now we mentioned earlier. That your previous book largely focused on the seventies and particularly the eighties. When sort of the british invasion happened on broadway. You had andrew lloyd webber and other composers boob schoenberg of course the producer cameron mackintosh just dominating american theater. The next book here actually begins with the end of that which ironically happens when the same man the sort of kicked it off andrew. Lloyd webber gets us idea to do a musical of billy wilder sunset boulevard. Now in the face of that you got a well known hollywood classic. You got andrew. Lloyd webber writing the score glenn close for a star would seem like a recipe for hit. What goes wrong there..

"Listening to and Michael Riedel in the morning seven ten W. O. I think one thing that the lead and I can agree on is this a tearing down of statues and renaming buildings because you know somebody once upon a time may not have been as progressive as everybody is now is really getting out of control I mean Woodrow Wilson I wouldn't say he was the greatest president of all time the league of nations was kind of a failure actually because you know if they formed after World War one and then get World War two so it really didn't do much to stop the rise of Hitler and Mussolini but what role Wilson was probably on the whole he would be considered a progressive today but all nope he but might have sent a couple of races things back in the day and so they're changing the name of the Woodrow Wilson school of international affairs at at at Princeton to I don't know what you know the Susan rice school of international affairs this is getting a little out of control isn't one well I think so I think it's always dangerous when you look at the past through the lens of the future you know when you look through a twenty twenty eyeglasses at now I think you just can't it's part of our history I'm not even opposed to tearing you know I'm I'm opposed to tearing down statues of of Confederate leaders I mean they're they're talking points I mean the whole idea of tearing down even Columbus or I mean what he gonna take to to the faces off mount Rushmore because they owned slaves the washing a Jefferson I mean it really you just can't go back in and just whitewash history because you don't like what someone said or did its part of our past and you have to deal with that I mean things were different you know when the United States was formed slaves were legal and women did not have the votes well things change okay right but also the import thing to understand here is all these people now I mean this Charles blow who really I know Joe you everyday Charles blow in the York times this guy is a total really radically don't know he's he's insane anyway he was like saying yes even George Washington should be wiped away well here's the thing guys all right all of the things that George Washington Benjamin Franklin Thomas Jefferson Sam Adams all of the things they put in place and some of them were slave owners no question about it it was a different time but all of the things that they put in place I E. the declaration of independence and the constitution have led the way to freeing the slaves to giving minorities equal opportunities they were not as far ahead as we are now but the basis for changing our society was laid by those guys got guys of the foundation that all men are created equal that was expanded to all women are created equal they put down the foundations of this country this great country there and now you want to wipe them away from history that is insane to me and in a last straw maybe the John Wayne airport Michael all I know yeah they want to rename the John Wayne airport because he did you know he did westerns where the Indians were not portrayed as you know the wonderful great people who should have really run this country meet run this country please yeah they were listen I've nothing against the indigenous I guess we have to call them people yeah but what what would the country be like if the indigenous people were running it yeah we'd be but hunting by coach I I didn't I was set out looking I would start acting on the whole there just just by the way it's not only the fact that he played roles apparently he had stomach racist manifestos John Wayne's that was more than just the roles he played movies but listen you can exchange every name everything I mean you know you got a lot what's as is the Saint Louis airport in them that the Limburg I mean he was a right he was changed that name yeah yeah yeah that's right renaming gonna use every really all of us either way argument beings and all of us had flaws except except for you Michael but most of us have flaws into you can't go back and change every single night by the way let I wonder because you're probably doing sports back in the day have you ever seen a great John Wayne movie can you name one great John Wayne movie we think about this John Wayne give me a name one John Wayne movie line on Google come on a real low have you ever reveals his Google I don't know if the light was reliable about you know with the blood I have no idea is the job lately you want to see the greatest John Wayne movie of all yeah and I'm sure our listeners would agree with us the searchers with mark and John Wayne never heard that is and I'm I haven't heard of it quiet man ever all it's great quite been as great yeah yeah you couldn't like that today because it beats his wife right that's right right yes yours though Fanta and Natalie wood at her most she was very young she was prac I think she was eighteen so legal the most beautiful Natalie would you ever seen and the way John Wayne has to deal with the fact that she was kind of raised by the indigenous people I was gonna say Indians but I'd say indigenous people it's complicated movie John Ford was the director of it it's a great great and it's so beautifully shot in

our boss Tom but Allister name Tom he said really some sacrament not made from full burqa summer song maybe if the radio is playing and have broken legs and can't get up the chain station that song has a lot to me for you and I we had a big crush on Julie who is two years older than I was the summer of seventy nine I never heard that song I thought of her thank you wrecked on Julie she she remembers still good on the line join us every week at this time the ABC entertainment contributor so Larry good morning to you and you know big story broke this week I thought well it did for me personally was Matt Lauer coming out on the media I. website and going after Ronan Farrow and all the things he wrote about Lauer and I'm taking all our side I don't yeah I'm not sure there's any evidence of rape or sexual assault I appropriate you know having one of the people that work well that's one thing but not rape or sexual assault what your thoughts are well I think the combination of both Baptiste which he wrote in February in a bag you start yes you have been a couple of months ago and then a banned Smith's piece in the times which of course it you know there's nobody nobody has an axe to grind in that story presumably right he's not the subject of the story raises serious questions that frankly I've had a lot of Jello German keypad about Ronan Farrow not to say that what that that he didn't nail Harvey Weinstein and that Matt was not a very very bad boy in the office there's no question about it is the principle is behavior was appalling but there's a more lots of things in the road in Parel book the suggestion that NBC wanted to tell a story because they were scared of wind Steen I'd be I'd be out the allegation of rape against mad that in many cases kind of put him out over his skis in ways that ordinary journalistic organizations would not do and it's interesting now the blowback of continuing yesterday on the view which is the chat show on television Abbas will be Goldberg and others Meghan McCain who's one of the co host not only attacks Lauer for his peace but also question what does Ronan Farrow have on the New York times why did they why that piece against them so he floated this absurd conspiracy that the times in Ben Smith went after Farrow to stop him from doing something which is precisely what Farrow claims NBC I mean it just becomes this madness so you know it reminds me of Larry jury member if this was in vogue for a while in the nineteen seventies new journalism you know people like Tom Wolfe and people were brought from your magazine where they would they would construct or is almost as though they were writing a novel with sort of novelistic details and then if you look back on those for you so you know they kind of fudge things facts that did not fit with the narrative they're they're you know there were heroes and the villains they would arrange or leave out all together see Ben Smith's piece accuses roaming feral doing something like that where do you study let's also go back could you be present in Tomball but some of the real kind of classic you know story prepares for the new journalism the way those stories were constructed you'd be hard pressed in certain instances not to know that when he was quoting someone in the car late at night one night he wasn't there you know like what was done have kind of like I would say fabricated but was created for a different kind of purpose nothing wrong apparel look suggests new journalism this is not some tapestry of impression that he's writing this is a book according to be very hard journalism about a subject that the rest of the journalism world was unable to get in many ways he was right and he got it and you deserve the credit but in many other ways that Lauer point Dennis Smith points out he didn't cross the tease and dot the I's he didn't call people to verify whether or not what Brooke noble said to a friend was drilled he didn't call people to find out what I'm millions of people knew about the affair he didn't talk to the producer who she said she ran to after an alleged attack by Matt Lauer he didn't do all that you have to have Lauer then go do it on his own you know that's a bad thing that's equally bad journalism right story subjects should not be writing about what someone did or didn't do journalistically right since missing did I need no axe to grind and he was a fair arbiter and he raised a lot of questions that I think your spirit it doesn't mean hobby once you getting out of jail and doesn't mean that Matt Lauer was known bacterial coldly and a guy who you abused his power but it does next time someone does this he should be what does this damage Ronan Farrow at all and I see the New Yorker and his publishers are standing by his reporting I think it's not going to cause any kind of retro active damage I do think it's going to make people like David Remnick who that are at the new Yorker maybe be a little bit more careful about the broader suggestions in the stories against it NBC kill his mind the story yes did they kill it because of Harvey Weinstein putting pressure on him because of some kind of friendship no I think they killed it because you tell me one big story NBC news or any television news network by from sixty minutes producers they don't do that they were not in the business of taking down Hollywood moguls accusing them of rape that's not what they do they let right now in Fargo do some reporting he didn't come up with the good sufficiently and they cut him loose that's what happened this is not some broad conspiracy involving you know higher ups at NBC or NBC news and I think those kinds of accusations that he seems to be prone to may almost impossible to corroborate I think in the future it may be range and hello Larry Hackett ABC entertainment contributor former publisher editor of people magazine I got I got promoted if you want land you can make whatever so far god of people magazine Hey how about the big I just having a really big entertainment story the TV show that Michael Riedel starred on a smash is being made into a Broadway show it doesn't look like rados going to get a part I mean what what all these early it's early to say that one is really say that you know there may be a scene unless you know where I was a stool and a spotlight and Michael Walters I was guitar he plays Fogelberg for the a great hi Michael it's it's nineteen seventy nine and I'm thinking of like tomorrow's entrance dams and cut off jeans include the

Opera singer Brian Stokes Mitchell explains why he had to stop singing
"So so we we we had had had had to to to to replicate replicate replicate replicate every every every every yesterday yesterday yesterday yesterday with with with with Tony Tony Tony Tony Award Award Award Award winner winner winner winner Brian Brian Brian Brian Stokes Stokes Stokes Stokes Mitchell Mitchell Mitchell Mitchell every every every every night night at at seven seven he he would would sing sing the the impossible impossible dream dream out his window and because a big traffic jam on the Upper West Side and we had a chance to talk with Brian Stokes Mitchell about it yesterday but well interesting enough I can't stop singing yesterday records and it's interesting as I got older also rainy night yesterday one of the things I've been concerned about the crowds have been getting rather large outside and the corner where they hang out is on Broadway show and I've been a little concerned looking down because I see sometimes people aren't paying attention at the crossing the street sometimes the people that are driving the cars are looking up at the window or not paying attention is there as the driving down the road either so I actually talk to the NYPD about it yesterday and and ask them you know what they thought as well and they were getting concerned as well and I said what do you think we should do here they said the best thing to do is to stop singing and I said okay because you're the reason I'm doing it is to honor people like the NYPD and the fire department and EMS workers in the health care works an average not to make their lives more difficult so we both decided together that is best is to stop singing and just leave it as it was Brian you a battle the corona virus can you give us your experience with it what how when did it come on and how how tough was it for you my wife and I were doing love life at city center encores we rehearsing for that show and during the rehearsals I noticed I had a low grade sinus infection and a low grade fever which is not uncommon this time of year and but one particular night it got really really bad it hit me really really hard I ended up having a of astronomically high fever I had a heating pad that I brought into bed with me because I could not get warm enough but I was still chilled with this fever I had the worst headache of my life I had the worst body aches of my life my my doctor is it a doctorate with the actors fun actually and he was just so great he kind of led me by hand telephonically now for more than three weeks are almost a month now I've been cleared of any

Mitchell Broadway great Tony Award winner now you mention the actors fund you the chairman of the actors fund is at a marvelous charity which I've contributed to helping actors and others in in the business who are on hard times and need help now is there a particular stress on the actors fund now during this pandemic but yesterday there actually is I think going on a lot of charities like ours normally it in a year we would give away about a two million dollars of emergency assistance to probably about two thousand people a year at this point as of March of the twenty fourth it was we've given away seven and a half million dollars to about sixty five hundred people and we're anticipating probably by June or July it's going to be up to you near twenty million dollars so people what's been amazing is the creative community the off Broadway Broadway I've been coming up with the most incredible ideas I had and so many of them are are using these ideas to make money for the actors Jason Holland was musical musical director director for for beautiful beautiful came came up up with with this this fantastic fantastic arrangement arrangement of of you've you've got got a a friend

do that well here's your here's your chance Michael you gotta you gotta put the pressure on them all right well Brian we hate to put you on the spot but since you can't sing out your window and I agree with you we don't want to cause any problems on the Upper West Side but we have a lot of people who are inside with the radio side I'm sure they wouldn't mind a little bit of Brian Stokes Mitchell and the impossible dream yeah I mean I'm happy to do it I'll sing a little bit of the first first I think because one of the things I love about this on one of the reasons I was singing it was the song is not actually called the impossible dream is actually called the quest and it's not a song about trying to do the impossible it's a song about trying period and the reason I saying this is because that's what we're all doing right now but particularly to healthcare workers EMS workers first responders all those people listen to these lyrics and think about all of those people right

He don't even though I have no clue not much on the social media from lend. Michael WR? Well, Jake said I have a new drinking game take a shot. Every time Michael says the word progressive, maybe a fun game. I'd like to play that right now drinking in the morning. Go for Jake. Let's do it. Actually, you know, we have this y hunger thing going on which station wide, and you can actually bid to come up and visit us and be on the show and get on the air and all that stuff. Anyway, you a charity buzz dot com slash W, O Arbat Christopher tweeted and said the best part about winning that would be a chance to sit with that. Greek goddess, Natalie. Ooh. Wreak. God we somehow never quite think of that. But you know, that's true one of Natalie as agreed on you know, what our system not occurred to be. No, you're right. Assistant producer f is great at putting together like pictorial spreads. He should put a whole pictorial thing together on Natalie put ran life. Seriously, oh land, this is getting creepy. Natalie greet, people would like to see what she human resources human resources meeting. After show. These pictures of me I learned alert alert. Berman alert every once in a while I show up on our Twitter feed. Keep those tweets and emails coming. That Greek goddess Natalie. All right. Here's here's an interesting story. And I am somewhat conflicted about this. I am. Yeah. Progressive here. Go ahead. Know, I know this is a serious moment here. So the New York police department as added a new fleet of fourteen drones department set on Tuesday that the potential uses for the drones include search and rescue hard to reach crime scenes hostage situations and hazardous material incidents. Now, I'm all for you know, the police having all of the technology at their disposal to help fight crime. And to keep us safe. But I do tend to feel uneasy as does the New York Civil Liberties Union, I think this plenty of stuff looking at us out there already. There are cameras all over the place. You walk down the block you're going to be filmed by something. Now, do we need drones. Flying overhead that can spy on us too. I just feel we're living in a. Oversaturated surveillance society, and that that nerves meals, but I would have never thought that you would be siding with the New York, Sicily's, you know, I'm a big civil liberties. Yeah person. I I see I'm in favor of anything. See I got nothing to hide. So from my standpoint, whatever they want to do is fine with me. But it's the principle of the thing. Do you really want your every movement tract? I all they said they're going to be used in a specific case. How do we believe that? How do we know? Yeah. You know, they're just flying overhead checking out anybody doing anything. I don't know it it unnerves me a little bit. I do think that we've gotten carried away with our what do they call that closed circuit television cameras. Glad we have all that we get more creeps and catch more people. And I think it prevents more crime because everything's on camera. I don't know either. I don't I I don't like the feeling that big brother is looking over my shoulder. It's going to enhance investigations recovery of surveillance video record police actions. I guess also protect themselves. Right. I guess it's also, you know, well, these interest there they've if there's some kind of demonstration going on they can prove from the drone footage at the police acted properly. The New York Civil Liberties Union says the drone policy doesn't do enough to balance public privacy concerns. That's where I am with legitimate law enforcement needs. All right. I don't know. It's an interesting debate to have in a society. That's we're all on candid camera every minute of the day. How about the timing this week? I the MTA says they're going to there's too many fare beaters. We're gonna cut down the air conditioning in the summer and on the subway down the heat in the winter, and we're gonna not clean the cars twice. Not easily cleaned subway cars at both ends of the line. The only pick one. So the subway cars are going to be stink less comfortable. They'll be dirty. Dear around so be fatter. So that story comes out the very next day. Andy Byford his hat in hand saying, oh, I need forty billion dollars for the subways. I mean, really. You know, the optics of that. So he's before the city council yesterday, and he wants forty billion primarily because of, you know, the new signal stuff you don't need to do so much work on the 'cause you don't need to put so much equipment in the tunnel. And therefore, it's quicker cheaper unless intrusive to install the equipment. Also live won't is a room somewhere. Doesn't sound like he's at my fair. Lady of the MTA says he has a nice, well, he say he said, if I get the forty billion would it be lovely say that at the end of his forty billion pounds. I'm sorry dollars. Oh, boy, they want this. Modern tech called communicate communications based train control. Oh, this is great. The plan is called fast forward. Subways fast, forward all breath. I went down to take the subway yesterday. We had to go to town interview. Aaron Sorkin I was on the platform. This is noon. The middle of the day. I was on the platform for fifteen minutes waiting for the train to come new interview.

The Harper Lee novel to kill a Mockingbird for the stage, and it opens on Broadway at the Shubert theatre next week. And I found out doing little reporting yesterday. How many tickets at sold already Lynn Scott sixteen million dollars advance sales for tequila Mockingbird? Now, you would mention yesterday were going to bring along a letter that he wrote to you. Did you do that? I couldn't find it in my files years about. Yeah. I did he a laugh about it. It's almost two years ago when I was just starting out. I was a critic for a small magazine and Aaron had a play on Broadway called a few good men. And I panted I said this pales in comparison. Oh, you're stuck. Pales in. Stuff sucks. I said this pales in comparison to the great Herman walks, the Caine mutiny, you know, that's the best play. And I got this note from a young Aaron Sorkin Saint how devastated he was to read my review, and well, you see how my critical chops impeded that career. So what was his reaction when you're reminded them of the story. He laughed. He said, you know, it was painful because I was in the only critic Japan the place with my I play on Broadway, and I was excited, and and it didn't it flopped on did he turned into a movie, and the movie was absolutely can't handle the truth code red, great movie as well Muller report comes out, Len. And there's nothing there and Russian collusion. I'm gonna play. You can't handle the truth. Yeah. Very good. I don't think you enjoy. We're gonna be able to speaking of that Michael Flynn is singing like a canary, but just how damaging is his testimony going to be we'll sort that out. Now. When we come back.

And that he didn't like the cars he doesn't like Mercedes Benzes or BMW's. They were a bunch of luxury cars was jealous of the fact that they were having sex. The fact that some people have Mercedes Benzes, and he does it was the guy just nuts. I think they got navy just he looks a little nuts on the surveillance camera.
