TWITTER: Fab Five Freddy and DJ Cassidy teamed up with Debbie Harry for a legendary Zoom version of "Rapture"!

Fab 5 Freddy is making a comeback of sorts! Along with this, he was just prominently featured in Madonna's Paramount+ Q&A special.

CBS SUNDAY MORNING: Candice Bergen is 75 and looking forward, she tells CBS Sunday Morning. So glad I caught her on Broadway in Gore Vidal's The Best Man.

CBS SUNDAY MORNING: Another CBS Sunday Morning piece, this time a dual interview with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo. It's so interesting to hear her saying that seeing Liza Minnelli perform inspired her to quit her job as a bank teller and start looking for music gigs because, "I could do that!"

YOUTUBE: Chynna Phillips Baldwin (who acts like she needs ... help) interviews the daughter of Mama Cass, Owen, about the late, great rock legend.

NYT: Julie Andrews remembers Stephen Sondheim, writing, "This is not supposed to happen to a genius that we adore so much."

PLAYBILL: Angela Lansbury tells Playbill exclusively of Sondheim, "I was so sorry to hear about Stephen. I am so infinitely grateful because, as he liked to jokingly remind me, he was really responsible for launching my career in the theatre. The first show we did together was Anyone Can Whistle. Then, we did Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, and A Little Night Music." There's more. So many iconic aspects of Sondheim.
