News Roundup

-There'll be a new Culture Editor at the Times soon. Current man Sam Sifton is going to become the restaurant critic(!). (NYT statement here.)

-Drabinsky update (if anyone still cares). The real-life Bialystok is indeed getting jail time: seven years. Actually, it's 11, technically, if you consider there are two sentences he will serve concurrently. So much for his selfless "lecture tour" suggestion. Appeal is pending.

-Please note: the upcoming "Piven Monologues" at Joe's Pub will not--repeat, not--star Mr. Jeremy Piven himself. No, some smartalek theatre geeks are putting together a little readers theatre, shall we say, based on the Trials of a Sushi Addict.
