Personal Quote:

[on her tour-de-force rendition of "Getting Married Today" in the play "Company"] It was a perfect song for me. I'm not a singer, and it has maybe four notes. See more »

Trivia:

Actor Vic Tayback, in his role as the cook and owner, Mel Sharples, in his greasy "Mel's Diner", featured in the CBS' situation comedy series Alice (1976), often used a scripted nickname for his waitress Vera, the role Beth Howland performed - "Dingy". See more »
