An oversized, disembodied gold hand greets me as I enter Cora Cahan’s office. Its fingers, which dangle over Madame Tussauds across the street, appear to be stirring something — possibly the milling crowds lining up 10 stories below in front of the wax museum, or Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square, or the New Amsterdam Theatre, home these past five years to Disney Theatrical Productions’ “Aladdin.” Family crowds. Tourist crowds.
