The schedule for the week of Nov. 27-Dec. 3 follows.

Center Stage
Nov. 27. Special guest is Lynn Pinto, producer of the annual "Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure" CD. Theatre fans may not be able to hear the casts of their favorite Broadway shows perform at strikebound theatres, but they can be heard singing holiday songs – old and new – on the annual collection that benefits Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Pinto tells the backstage stories behind a half dozen of the songs and tells how the annual institution got its start.
