Harvey , a genial, old-fashioned comedy, is currently providing gentle, old-fashioned entertainment at the Walnut Street Theatre. There are lots of wink-wink, nudge-nudge sexual innuendos, while the tip-top cast, made up of some of Philadelphia's favorite actors - all masters of the double-take - is hamming it up under Bob Carlton's broad direction. The play, recently revived on Broadway with The Big Bang Theory 's Jim Parsons, is best remembered in the 1950 film version starring Jimmy Stewart.

TATTLE sure hopes that Keke Palmer has a thick skin because if the commenters on Philly.com, Google, Yahoo and virtually every other website in which anonymous trolls can spew vitriol are an indication, she's going to be dealing with a lot of insults and will soon be responsible for the problems at our southern border and in the Mideast.

It's been translated into more languages than Sheldon knows and generated enough revenue to launch Howard into space or get Raj a girlfriend. As it is so popular, the actors want to receive just compensation. At the moment the number being bandied about for just compensation is $1 million per episode, per actor (and it's not as if they were making $8 an episode last year)
