      So Levin didn’t have an issue with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeves smooching in 1982, but his “estate” doesn’t want to see that happen today? Methinks Levin may have bigots in his family tree.

      I saw this production at the Center this spring with two people who’d seen the original. It’s a shame that this isn’t being revived (and it would be a tragedy to omit Burt Grinstead’s naked rear)

      It’s just a matter of time before Lady Gaga performs on Broadway (a la “Speed The Plow”) or make a movie based on a Broadway musical (a la “Evita”) or do a Broadway type album written by a famous Broadway musical writer (a la Steven Sondheim’s “Dick Tracy”). This woman has not one original bone in her body and she’s about as predictable as the day is long.

      I wonder when she’s going to do an avant-garde coffee table book of herself posing nude (a la Madonna’s “Sex” book). And we all wait with baited breath for her electronica masterpiece of an album (a la “Ray Of Light”). Sorry Lady Xerox, you’re fooling nobody, save for your 14-year old “little monsters”.

      TOOTSIE as a movie made a chunk of change among Chinese moviegoers when released. Something about its pronunciation meant “gay” in Mandarin.

      Gaga as Gypsy Rose Lee strikes me as appropriate!

      Jesus, I pray that “Tootsie” never makes it to Broadway. Although it is about a straight man in drag and most people don’t realize that straight men dress in drag far more than gay men.
