Broadway stars Faith Prince, Peter Gallagher (the two starred in the 90's revival of Guys and Dolls) and Patti LuPone joined with every actor in every Broadway show currently running to sing "New York, New York" in a TV spot whose aim is to encourage the attendance of Broadway and Off-Broadway theatre.
