The Wall Street Journal reports that at a private party in New Jersey for a charity last night a woman fainted when Nathan Gunn began singing.
"The paramedics came to take away the guest, who seemed conscious and fine; reportedly, she was on a new medication and had not eaten enough that day.
""I don't know if anyone has ever fainted while I've sung before,' Mr. Gunn explained after his performance. 'Usually they're seated.'"

"America" (Dancers, West Side Story)
I regret to say that I could not manage to sit through the television broadcast of this Sondheim concert. Quite self-satisfied performers performing boring upper-middle-brow schlock for a quite self-satisfied audience.

Rosie O'Donnell's Broadway Kids has announced the lots for its 2010
UPDATE (Sept. 15): The item appears to have been changed to "2 VIP tickets to The Metropolitian Opera's production of The Magic Flute and a backstage meet & greet with Nathan Gunn on December 21st, 2010 at 11:00am." Perhaps the change came because nobody had placed a bid for the Christmas Eve tickets.
FURTHER UPDATE! (later on Sept. 15): The date is back to December 24! I wonder what was going on?!?
EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: (a few minutes later on Sept. 15): I am told that a relative of the singer says the date is indeed December 21st. So, proceed with caution, if at all, if you are interested.
