‘Once upon a time’…. is usually how fairy tales start, and it is the basis for a life lived in the entertainment world. Actors, who are not famous, are rarely asked their opinion, because…well, no one cares who I am voting for in the next election…
Ok, ok, ok, people who want to have the ability to achieve the American Dream care how I am voting….
WHOOPS! Not that American Dream….
(Ok, shaping up to be an American Nightmare…holy Nightingale is that offensive!)
Anyway, I am not famous and no one really cares how I vote other than people who troll the internet looking to argue with me who believe that right is might or Mitt is it or whatever the heck ‘it’ is.
It’s my vote, and I’m going to go my own way. Hopefully more than 47% of us feel the same, I would be happy with 51%.
Showbiz IS an American Dream, and it’s a luxury for those of us who live and work in the Entertainment community to do so on a consistent basis. We generally do not say much beyond the 140 characters provided for us by App Geniuses, and sound bites are often pre-scripted by people funnier than anyone currently appearing on the Shopping Channel.
But here’s a way that we can share a ‘vote’ if you will – this coming Friday night, as a tribute to Barbra Streisand’s return to New York and specifically Brooklyn, I am sharing the stage in a Benefit for Broadway Cares/EFA. It’s a “One Night Only” thing
And I want you to come, if you can – if you are in New York and you are People – if you are People who care about a Person who sang about People Needing People, and if you are a Person who cares about HOW MUCH of a difference you can make just by attending a show that you are guaranteed to like ANYWAY kind of person. Just one special person.
I mean, LORNA LUFT? ANN HAMPTON CALLAWAY?
This is a charity that came together for the best of all possible reasons – to help sick people. People who need more than the usual amount of help, in a climate where health care costs are skyrocketing.
Broadway Cares – and so, I hope, do you.
This is it, my personal invitation – please come.
Let’s Vote with our Hearts, all 100 per cent of them.
