In Her Very Own Loaf Pan

So on our way in to see Barb Jungr, Jazz Chanteuse, at the Cafe Carlyle, we got to see Elaine Stritch AGAIN. This time she was finishing up her dessert at her table from the early show. She didn't so much perform as just pick at some fruit on her plate, but it was still a delight.

Anyway, this is what Rex Reed, star of Myra Breckinridge, had to say about Stritchy recently in his New York Observer column:

Most of today’s singers emerge like raw dough, desperate to be kneaded into some recognizable shape. Ms. Stritch arrives fully baked in her own loaf pan. There is nobody quite like her and never will be.

God Bless, everyone.
