Big Daddy Speaks Out by ROBIN POGREBIN

Mr. Beatty engaged in a candid assessment of his co-stars. He said he very much liked his glamorous colleagues personally: Mr. Patric, best known for the film "After Dark, My Sweet," and Ms. Judd, who starred in "Ruby in Paradise."

B'way biz has ups, downs

Total receipts came to a record-setting $15,1 mil
Did anyone really expect "Bobbi Boland," "Laughing Room Only," "Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All" and "Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks" to make it past Thanksgiving, much less New Year's Day?
