Big congratulations are in order for David Colbert who won a Barrymore Award last nite for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Musical as Hedwig/Tommy Gnosis in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. For those of you that don't know, David is the brother of Steve Colbert, who spent the past year donating his free time to building the sets for Midsummer and I Hate Hamlet. He was also in Heaven & Hell. Steve only had one year with the Players, as he was a graduate student, finishing his doctorate in chemical engineering.

Zoo attendant Artie Shaughnessy dreams of being a successful songwriter. What his mistress, Bunny Flingus, who lives downstairs from his Queens apartment won't tell him -- and what his insane wife, Bananas, tries to get through to him -- is that Artie's songs stink. On Oct. 4, 1965, the day Pope Paul visits New York City, Bunny convinces Artie to call his old school buddy Billy Einhorn, a famous film director from Los Angeles, to finagle a job writing music for Billy's movies. (After all, Bunny feels that with the Pope here, there must be "miracles in the air.") But before Artie can reach out to Billy, Artie's son, Ronnie, goes AWOL from Fort Dix, secretly preparing to blow up His Holiness at Yankee Stadium. Instead, when the bomb explodes prematurely, the victims include a deaf film starlet and two Sisters of Charity ... but no Pope.
