The quoted phrase refers to a location, not to a people. The theater curtain calls I've seen with BC/EFA fundraising wisely do not go into partisan politics, instead mentioning the healthcare and other needs of those in our community, which I believe avoids turning people off and increases donations. Perhaps the NYC theater community could hold a gathering and sing songs outside the Fort Hamilton Parkway Brooklyn subway station to condemn these acts of hate in NYC. As an aside, I really love Ann Harada and remember seeing her and John Tartaglia in the original Avenue Q at the Vineyard - one of my favorite musicals. How the years fly by.
