Striking Hollywood writers vow not to picket Tony Awards, opening the door to some kind of show
Striking members of the Writers Guild of America have said they will not picket next month’s Tony Award telecast, clearing a thorny issue facing show organizers and opening the door for some sort of Broadway razzle-dazzle.
Angela Lansbury Just Heard the Nearly 30-Year-Old Reggae Song 'Murder She Wrote'
In what world do reggae and Angela Lansbury collide? On CBC Radio, DJ Tom Power interviewed the 93-year-old actress, best known for the CBS series Murder She Wrote. Lansbury played the crime-solving mystery writer Jessica Fletcher. Power introduced her by playing Jamaican reggae artists Chaka Demus & Pliers 1992 smash hit of the same name, Murder She Wrote. It was the first time Lansbury had heard the nearly 30-year-old track, but she seemed absolutely delighted by it. If, like Lansbury, youve never heard the original Chaka Demus & Pliers track, youve likely heard a remake. This year, Murder She Wrote is celebrating its 35th anniversary.
