The Times Square Show Public Service Announcement

Beth and Scott B, Lower East Side, NYC 1980
starring Jack Smith as Hamlet
produced by Coleen Fitzgibbon and Robert Burden

The pictures above come from one of the three advertisements that appeared in the wee hours of the morning on television for COLAB’s the Time Square Show, probably their best remembered endeavor (along with the Real Estate Show, which resulted in the establishment of ABC No Rio cultural center on Rivington Street.)  I don’t believe that Jack Smith was ever a member of COLAB, but I do remember Coleen telling me how she very carefully and kindly cleaned all of Jack’s slides for him and that there were thousands of them.  I believe she did it for the honor of looking at them.

This 30 second advertisement is available for viewing at:
