Theater

Hey, Old Jews, I Don’t Work For Variety

by

This Sunday’s Times ad for the hilarious show Old Jews Telling Jokes quotes me saying, yes, “HILARIOUS,” which is certainly accurate.

But here’s how they identify me:

Michael (Altar Boy Wannabe) Musto, Variety.

Huh? Of course I approved the “Michael.” I OK’d the “Altar Boy Wannabe.” I’m fine with the asterisked “Self-described” on the bottom of the ad. And I totally endorse the use of “Musto”.

But Variety???

Oy. Even people who don’t read the trades know I’m with the Village Voice. Been here quite a while.

Well, I’m sure it was an honest mistake, not another hilarious Jewish joke. And I’m told it will be corrected in a Theatermania eblast as well as another Times ad, so this little ex-altar boy wannabe is in for some lovely alteration.
