Not Bette-Related: 3 Ways To Help The Hurricane Relief Effort

I’m sure some of you have friends and relatives that have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina…just about all my relatives are from Biloxi, Gulfport, and Pensacola…and friends from New Orleans and the surrounding area. Like many, I’m just horrified at what I’m seeing on the television. Not getting any first hand reports from family or friends right now…can’t reach them.

But there are ways we can all pitch in. I saw the Governor of Louisiana or somebody like that and they said there are 3 main ways to help: Read More

Bruce Vilanch Bids Adieu To Broadway Sunday, September 4th, 2005, But He Has Much In Store For All Of Us!

BruceVilanch1.jpg

Well, after 700 + performances in the smash musical, Hairspray, Mister V will take his final bow as Edna on Sunday, September 4, 2005.

If you haven’t seen his fabulously funny turn as Tracy Turnblad’s mom, now is the time to do it. He won raves in this role and rightly so. He took a role originated by the incredible Harvey Feinstein and made it his own, bringing down the house in cities across the U.S. before hitting the Broadway stage last year.

But Mister V is never one to rest on his laurels. He’ll be back on stage in San Francisco with the sequel to his successful one man show, Almost Famous, in November. Hopefully he’ll take this on the road as well…. Read More

Liverpool Echo (Liverpool, England); 8/22/2005
Byline: t Janet Tansley

DOORS slam with sudden force. Whispers seep from ancient walls and temperatures plummet to an icy chill.

But while everyone around shrinks in to a quivering heap, world-famous spirit medium Derek Acorah calmly coaxes out the mischief-makers to make contact with the world beyond. Read More
