Lincoln Center Theater has terminated the contract of South Pacific stage manager Michael Brunner, after he was arraigned on Friday on a charge of unlawful surveillance. Brunner, 54, has admitted to using his iPhone to videotape one of the actresses in the hit revival. (Pervy spying? There's an app for that.) The actress, whose name is being withheld, discovered the iPod on a desk in her dressing room between acts, and said, "What the hell is this?" She then proceeded to finish the performance, and alerted theater personnel after the curtain call.

A witness allegedly saw Brunner leaving the actress's dressing room before the iPhone was discovered Wednesday night. And a source now tells the Post that Brunner, who is married with a daughter in college, "was after her for some time. He wanted to date her, and she was not interested in him. He said it was just a stupid mistake on his part and that he was very sorry." We'll leave it to the wags on the All That Chat message board to craft the winning bon mot: "That's what they get for hiring a heterosexual stage manager!"
