Is that the wind carrying Jane Eyre's name across the moors? No, it's just Seth Rudetsky joshing and kibbitzing with the three stars of that Broadway musical: Marla Schaffel, James Barbour and Mary Stout. The trio will join the genial host at his weekly New York City cabaret show, "Seth's Broadway Chatterbox," Feb. 8. Rudetsky, a comedian and writer for Rosie O'Donnell's TV show, hosts his variety show — the press materials call it a combination of "Mike Douglas, Dr. Seuss and Pee Wee Herman" — every Thursday at 6 PM at Don’t Tell Mama. There's a 2-drink minimum, but the $10 cover charge is donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
