It took more than a quarter century and two TONY awards for this incredibly talented, fairly famous and very lucky guy to buy an apartment in New York. Jeesh.
From the NYT: “If you want to be a theater actor, where do you live now?” said Mr. Spinella, 50, sitting in the bright, spacious Harlem apartment he bought last winter, after finally moving out of a rent-stabilized tenement that had been his home for 27 years.
Young actors “struggle on a Broadway salary,” he said. “A lot of them live in shoeboxes; some of them are literally three to a shoebox. New York has gotten prohibitively expensive.”
Um, tell me again: Why is New York a good town for new theatre?
