cheres en New York,
Rawther last minute, but I'm going to be returning to that fabulous
nitery, 54 Below, on Wednesday, May 29th at 9:30 and once more
accompanied by that debonair master of the keys, Mr. Tom Judson. I hope
you can join us.
"A wonderful photographer, David A. Lee, recently took this
photo of me backstage at a benefit I was doing in Palm Springs.
I love it!"
illustrator, Glen Hanson, recently did this
of me. He's absolutely brilliant!"
"I was recently inducted into the Players Club's
Hall of Fame. I love being a member of that fabled Actor's haven
on Gramercy Park and I was so thrilled when they commissioned portraits
of the ten honorees including Edward Albee and Clark Gable!
My portrait was by the artist Thomas Nash and it
came out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined."
A wonderful artist named Todd Yeager
recently did this
drawing of me as Judith of Bethulia.
I guess it's me as
Sarah Bernhardt as Judith.
I love it.
In June, 2011, I was extremely honored and
touched to be named an "Off-Broadway" legend at the first annual
Off-Broadway Alliance Awards at Sardi's. My fellow legends honored
were my great buddy, Julie Halston, Everett Quinton, Tom Jones and
Blue Men Group.
A wonderful artist named John Wolfe drew
this sketch of me while I was performing the Marlene Dietrich song "Boys
in the Backroom" at a recent benefit for the Actor's Fund. I love that
John was able to capture me "doing Dietrich."
