Friends, fans and colleagues gathered Sunday night to say good-bye to legendary DJ and music producer Peter Rauhofer. New Yorkers gathered outside the Roxy, a nightclub where they shared their Saturday nights with the Grammy Award winner doing what he loved doing most… making music.

What a great way to end the Broadway season! I’m definitely a fan of Bette Midler, and, somewhat more randomly, a fan of the real-life woman she’s portraying, Sue Mengers, the first female Hollywood superagent, who dominated the town during the wild and woolly 1970s. So I had a great time simply being in the presence of Midler and Mengers, as squired onto the Broadway stage by a writer and director who are among the best and brightest Broadway has to offer (John Logan and Joe Mantello, respectively).
