First Baseball, Now Broadway!

"Admission. I took steroids when I wrote 'The Odd Couple.' It made me write faster and funnier. I hit some jokes out of the theater. I admit it now. They'll probably take away my Tony Award. God, what a fool I was."

-Neil Simon. As told to Page Six.

Maybe we should launch an investigation next into alcohol-enhanced performance by our leading theatre artists. That would be a lot of revoked Tonys and Pulitzers, I'm afraid...

(No, Page Six is not all I'm reading these days. But I do admit to end-of-year fatigue and holiday onslaught. Thanks to all who have sent me interesting articles and news items. I look forward to some good reading soon.)
