Editorials Stars on the T.O.W.N. February 11, 1998 Share 1 -- Two of Branson's top draws are Tony Orlando and Wayne Newton. Until last year, both performed at the Yellow Ribbon Theater. But in 1998, they are opening their separate shows April 14 and 21, respectively, at a different theater, which they have renamed the Talk of the T.O.W.N. "T.O.W.N.," if you haven't figured it out by now, is made up of the initials of the two stars. We're a little surprised Newton, the high-profile, longtime fixture of Lounge Lizardry, agreed to "second billing" here. But then, if he hadn't, the acronym would've come out sounding like the radio station of the National Tourism Organization.
