  • Providing Lip Service

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    January 14, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    Several years ago, Yvette Lowenthal's friend, ICM agent Doug Zandoren, thought her low rasp would make her a good candidate for radio spots. He was right. Since then, the twentysomething Lowenthal has been working nonstop, providing lip service on high-profile campaigns, which...

    It is strange to be alone with Billy Crystal. He's still funny, insightful, charming -- but the venue is all wrong. The Castle Rock headquarters where he works in Beverly Hills has all the ambience of a mortgage brokerage. Crystal's own office is more homey: Craftsman furniture, a...

  • Full Circle

    "Phantom," "Les Mis," and now... "Masada: The Musical."

    Don't call her the "Jewel" of Jewish preschool.
