Quotes

Elaine Stritch: [of resolving to control her drinking] Two drinks a day, *on* *or* *off* stage. Two drinks a day. *Two* drinks a day. TWO drinks a day. It *doesn't* *work*! Not when you want eleven. And not when you start shopping for wineglasses in the vase department at Bloomingdale's.

A Great Theatrical Event....
18 May 2002 | by (Fords,NJ) – See all my reviews

A true theatrical legend who never quite made it to the upper echelon of Broadway superstars, finally and deservedly makes it here!! What a show, what an event... Ms. Stritch on stage alone (for the most part).. telling her tales , funny, sad , poignant... you'll laugh ,youll cry you will be moved, and will not be bored... you will be mesmerized.Many times Tony nominated, she has never won.. there will be no justice if she loses... her competition is formidible ....(B.Arthur,B.Cook, J.Legumzamo) , but Elaine should win.!. If you dont see the show.. purchase the 2 cd set..(most of the great moments have been recorded..not all) I hope they record for VHS/ & DVD also. She is amongst a handful of Broadway legends who always steal the show (Dorothy Loudon,Kaye Ballard) but this is her show!! her moment in theatrical history... & its been a long trek..her opening line says it all"Like the prostitute once said its not the work,..it's the stairs" Wonderful show.. a truly great versatile talent steps into a luminous brilliant spotlight, and captivates all.. For my money the most rewarding show on Broadway now including the much overrated "The Producers".. go see!!
