“I accredit animals for keeping me going when times were bad.”
“It’s always a thrill to walk through a Broadway stage door.”
“I do have a mouth – I will say. I speak up when I see things I don’t care for.”
“I’ve been lucky enough to play some funny, nasty ladies in my day, and if you can make them foolish, they’re even funnier.”
“There is nothing more joyful to me than hearing a live audience laugh. Especially when I planned it that way!”
“As much as I love to dance, and I still take class, aerobics and that sort of thing, and I still move very well and all of that – I’m really not a dancer anymore.”
“I love stage actors. There’s something special about all people who have to do a performance eight shows a week, and musical people, especially, are so much fun.”
