August 4: Guests this week are Brian Childers and Kimberly Faye Greenberg, who play the husband and wife team of comedian Danny Kaye and writer Sylvia Fine in the biographical new Off-Broadway play, Danny and Sylvia. Kaye, of course was the star of Broadway’s Two by Two, Lady in the Dark and other shows, and went on to Hollywood fame in "Hans Christian Andersen," "Merry Andrew" and "White Christmas."
