The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, Executive Editor at The Huffington Post's Gay Voices, returns to The Signorile Show today to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines in the LGBT blog-o-sphere. You can also follow Noah on twitter.

By the mid-1970s Times Square had become the seedy symbol of New York’s economic decline, and attending an evening at a Broadway musical required scurrying past sex shops and all manner of shady characters on the way to the theater.  However, thanks to the efforts of a handful of people set on saving the industry they loved, Broadway experienced an extraordinary rebirth which according to Michael Riedel in his book Razzle Dazzle: The Battle For Broadway paralleled the transformation of Times Square and New York City itself.  Michael has been a theater columnist for the New York Post since 1998 and is also the co-host of the weekly talk show Theater Talk on PBS, and he joins today in studio to talk all about the book and the history of Broadway in the period just after New York Theater’s golden age.  You can also follow Michael on twitter.
