Trivia:

Ended her 18 year feud with Patti LuPone at the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors, where they both paid tribute to Broadway legend Barbara Cook. LuPone was set to star as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard, but was fired by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Close replaced her and went on to win a Tony Award for her performance. See more »
