Wow, you're fast. I just uploaded that to my You Tube account last night. I sent it to Sasha Charnin and Kim Stern, who are both featured in the piece. This story was about a desert club in Manhattan that had a special show for kids, called Youngstars. It ran for several years in the early 80's and I was a part of the group after that piece aired. Many "Annie" kids performed there. The man interviewed, Robert Marks, is a voice teacher for kids in New York and appeared briefly in my documentary. He also played the piano at the bookstore performance that we all did last year to promote the DVD release of "Life After Tomorrow."

Julie: You mentioned that, Sasha was part of that group. I didn't realize that she enjoyed performing, too! So, why wasn't she ever in "Annie"?

Yes, Sasha loved to perform. She wanted to be in "Annie" but her Dad did not put her in the show. I don't even think she knows why. He did put her in other cabaret shows that he directed, when she was in her teens and twenties.

Martin Charnin probably didn't want to expose his young daughter to the kind of things that were discussed in "Life After Tomorrow".
