PASSING STAGES

A BROADWAY CELEBRATION
Charles Fazzino, the internationally celebrated pop artist has created a striking, full-color, 25 x 35-inch poster called Celebrate Broadway! in honor of the current League of American Theatres and Producers project known as Celebrate Broadway|100 Years in Times Square. The lively work depicts Times Square bursting with theatrical activity––the annual concert of stars, marquees ablaze with past and present hits, legitimate theatres, restaurants and shops and key buildings. The original commemorative piece is in 3-D and is part of Fazzino's Celebrate Broadway|100 Years in Times Square, a traveling exhibition of 16 of his Broadway images (in Florida at present). The poster is available for $30 at the Triton Gallery, 323 W. 45th St., between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.

Celebrity Sandwiches The Stage Deli on Seventh Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets) has announced its honor roll of stars who have had sandwiches named after them in 1994: Jim Abbott, Yogi Berra, Bill Clinton, Connie Chung, Gloria Estefan, Reggie Jackson, Bruno Kirby, Susan Lucci, Robert Morton, Al Pacino, Pat Riley, Wills Reed, Phil Rizzuto, Jerry Seinfeld, Duke Snider and Sharon Stone. The "Honor Roll of Stars" is a 56-year-old tradition, and many of the celebrities honored eat and the restaurant and work or live in the vicinity.

Babbling Brooks At a recent PLAYBILL luncheon members of the cast of the acclaimed play Angels in America: Perestroika revealed that Mel Brooks saw the play and stated that it contained the funniest line of dialogue that he had heard in the theatre in the last 50 years. We won't give the line away, but when you see the play, note actor Stephen Spinella's hilarious reply when he's asked by Kathleen Chalfant if he's a hairdresser.
