Two artists — Ryan Murphy ("Glee" and "American Horror Story") and singer Lady Gaga — recently had the chance to visit that basement mall.

In a panel entitled "Ryan Murphy and Friends," Murphy, according to, said, "That was an evening that was jaw-dropping for me. We had dinner with Barbra and Jim [Brolin], and Kelly [Preston] and John [Travolta], and Gaga and I. That’s all the people who were invited. And after dinner, she said, 'Do you want to see the mall?' And Gaga and I were out of that chair so fast … We went down to the mall and spent an hour down there. She pulled out her collection of gowns from Funny Girl and Hello, Dolly! And then she said, 'Do you want frozen yogurt?' I could write a whole book about that night."

Lady Gaga can be seen in the new season of "American Horror Story," which is titled "American Horror Story: Hotel."

Tolins is perhaps best known as the playwright of The Twilight of the Golds (Broadway), If Memory Serves (Promenade Theater), The Last Sunday in June (Rattlestick and Century Center) and Secrets of the Trade (Primary Stages). He co-wrote the films "The Twilight of the Golds" and "Martian Child." He was a consulting producer on the CBS comedy "Partners" and was a co-producer on the first season of "Queer As Folk" on Showtime.
