A Texas Trilogy playwright, Preston Jones, composer-lyricist, Stephen Sondheim, actor Ted Bessell, and people in the casts of Streams, Threepenny Opera, Shenandoah, and several others. 
Shenandoah star, John Collum, a moderate liberal and a Tennessee-born Southern Baptist, is keeping a very careful eye on his Georgia neighbor Mr. Carter.

One of Carter's first supporters on Broadway was Joy Franz, the female lead in Pippin and a Kansas-born Republican farm girl turned Democrat. During the Convention Joy distributed Pippin apples to he Carter family and conventioneers.

Paul Rudd, featured last season in four productions (The Glass Menagerie, Streamers, Ah, Wilderness!, and Henry V) and portraying the young JFK in an upcoming TV special, is also a Carter supporter. "I'm a regular Democrat that feels you come out in favor of your party's nominees no matter who they are, unless they're so radically absurd that it makes no sense to support them," said Paul sitting in his West Side apartment recently. "Though I did support Johnson and Humphrey I think a lot of Democrats really haven't recovered from what happened on Nov. 22, 1963. I'd met Kennedy, campaigned for him and had been deeply moved by him. For a lot of people his death was kind of the end of active participation in politics.
