La Cieca hears (from sometimes reliable internet snitch Tony Soprano) that Matthew Epstein will make a triumpant return to the 15% biz in general and Columbia Artists Management in particular. Expect an announcement (from someone besides Tony, that is) sometime next week. Glad to see that someone knows his correct Fach!

In completely unrelated news, an Oslo court has ruled that striptease is an art, just like opera. Doesn’t it just figure that this would happen right after they closed down the Gaiety?
