Trivia

Filmmaker Rick McKay starred Elaine Stritch in his award-winning feature documentary, "Broadway: The Golden Age." Soon after he followed her through rehearsals with a camera and crew to create and produce the segment "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty" for EGG: the arts show" on PBS. Much of that footage, the only shot of the original show's rehearsals, appears in the HBO documentary, where McKay is credited. Stritch also appears in McKay's sequel to "Broadway: The Golden Age."

a terrific show from a great old pro
16 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Elaine Stritch is one of the survivors of Broadway, a tough old broad with a voice if, not exactly melodic, is of the stuff great stage singers are made of. Think Ethel Merman after hundreds of cigarettes. This show, which ran on Broadway and then in the West End, was well worth seeing and this recording is a good standby if you missed the live event.

In between memories of her start in showbiz, her time as an understudy, her first big break (in Pal Joey singing 'Zip'), her time in Hollywood, her stage career, her sitcoms, and her alcoholism, Ms Stritch finds time to sing a range of songs including 'Zip', 'The Ladies Who Lunch', 'Broadway Baby', 'Why Do The Wrong People Travel', and, best of all, 'I'm Still Here'. With minimal staging it really is the case that the star is the thing, and her she reigns supreme.

Fabulous.
