Elaine Stritch is without question one of the Grand Dames of Broadway. In a career spanning over 50 years she has starred in shows as diverse as Rodgers and Harts Pal Joey, Noel Cowards Sail Away and most famously, Stephen Sondheims Follies and Company, as well as in numerous film and award-winning television series.
At the age of almost 80, Elaine Stritch is as dynamic as ever, giving an astounding performance in her highly successful show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty. This highly-acclaimed one-woman show has been a huge critical and commercial success in New York (both Broadway and the Public Theater) and in London. In a series of vignettes punctuated by songs from the shows in which she has starred, she tells stories, ranging from the hilarious to the deeply moving, from her turbulent life and career. The stories include her disastrous, but extremely funny date with Marlon Brando while they were at drama school together, a tour de force about standing in for Ethel Merman in Call Me Madam in New York while performing at the same time in Newhaven in Pal Joey, working with Noel Coward in Sail Away, failing to get a starring role in The Golden Girls because she insulted the writer and her later, ultimately successful struggles with alcohol and diabetes.
The 19 songs include:
- Broadway Baby (Sondheim)
- But Not For Me (Gershwin)
- Ive Been To a Marvellous Party (Coward)
- The Ladies Who Lunch (Sondheim)
- Theres No Business Like Show Business (Berlin)
- Zip (Rodgers and Hart)
- Im Still Here (Sondheim)
