The Deal

The New York Times reports that president Barack Obama has nominated Rocco Landesman, the Broadway producer of shows like “Big River,” and “Angels in America,"  as the next chairman  of the National Endowment for the Arts.

“It’s potentially the best news the arts community in the United States has had since the birth of Walt Whitman,” said playwright Tony Kushner. 

When he produced Mel Brook’s show “The Producers," Rocco Landesman introduced the theater-loving public to the $480 “premium” ticket.
