as you know, there is a strike right now by stagehands on Broadway. Sadly, it's threatening the livelihoods of the many performers involved in these shows (many shows are unlikely to survive this a friend in the business tells me). The cast from The Color Purple gathered on Broadway last week rallying to show their support and say, "let's try and work this out together". Remember, these are people facing no checks into next year, no job, the end of their shows potentially... take a look at what happened (Fantasia is the one leading "worship") doesn't it make you wish you'd been there? Here's to Thanking and Praising God ... this side of the miracle! Happy Thanksgiving
