Elaine Stritch is without question one of the Grande Dames of Broadway. In a career spanning over 50 years she has starred in shows as diverse as Rodgers' and Hart's 'Pal Joey', Noel Coward's 'Sail Away', and most famously, Stephen Sondheim's 'Follies' and 'Company', as well as in numerous films and award-winning television series. At the age of almost 80, Elaine Stritch is as dynamic as ever, giving an astonishing 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.
