Personal Quote:

[on being called the first lady of British musical theater] I think it's rather grand. It makes me feel very old. It's silly, really. They're probably just saying it because I've been around so long. But I accept it gracefully. I just keep slapping on the makeup, wiping away the years and going on stage. [The Arizona Republic, Feb. 24, 2013] See more »


She starred on Broadway in revival of musical 'Follies' at Circle on the Marquis Theatre, 2011. See more »
