    BROADWAY NEWS EXCLUSIVE! After “Rebecca” debacle Shubert CEO Phil Smith and ex-wife Tricia Walsh Smith move forward to finance Walsh/Kay musical Change the Day and save Broadway’s Broadhurst Theater!


    After Broadway News exclusively reported yesterday that Shubert Chairman Phil Smith has been in urgent talks with ex-wife Tricia Walsh-Smith to bring her musical “Change the Day” into the Broadhurst after the death of “elusive” businessman Paul Abrams caused the plug to be pulled on Rebecca, Broadway News has now learned that Walsh-Smith has secured finance for “Change the Day” from pensioner Jack Scrotum of Cobble Hill retirement home, Brooklyn. According to insiders Walsh-Smith was seen huddled with the heavily sedated Scrotum in the living area of Cobble Hill late yesterday and after much discussion accepted a check for an undisclosed amount. Sources close to Walsh-Smith tell us that the investment falls way short of the ten million needed for the production but Walsh-Smith is confident that with prudent management and stringent cost-cutting they will be able to get the show up and running. According to insiders Barry Weissler is at this moment en route to meet with Walsh-Smith and Shubert honchos Phil Smith and Bob Wankel to discuss coming onboard as producer/general manager.
