Broadway babies


Millennium-eve travel to New York City turned political last week as autocratic mayor Rudy Guiliani found himself at odds with his usually docile police commissioner, Howard Safir.

The normally thieve-thick duo apparently fell out over the lights of Broadway, specifically whether Broadway curtains should rise on New Year's Eve.

Safir recommended that Broadway theaters go dark that night to alleviate some of the expected Times Square crowding.

Guiliani, who tends to frown upon other peoples' ideas, immediately contradicted his suddenly independent-minded commissioner.

Meanwhile, thousands of tickets have already been sold and theater owners are split over how to proceed. I guess everybody needed more advance notice about New Year's. Oh, well, maybe next millennium.
