Liz Smith: Celebrating My First Friend in New York Theater: Shirley Herz
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"I'm as pure as the driven slush!" said Tallulah. Finally, an evening where we didn't even need Tallulah. I thought I was the world class expert on fundraising evenings, but last week I received a big surprise when I trekked west, almost to the Hudson River, where something called Espace, was the scene of the 20th anniversary of the Abingdon Theater Company. What a great night! One can't always say that about charities raising money to keep going. People truly want to help and cooperate but most of these sizzlers fizzle out and are so boring! Not the Abingdon one. The celebration of this unique off-B'way producer of first rate first theatre had been called off at the last minute by Storm Sandy. So what were the chances that everybody would still show up for a re-figured date? Well, the funny thing is -- they did. So we had a great dinner and great evening and I got to celebrate the very first friend I ever made in the New York theater -- my To ...

Lucie, Robert and Marvin: They're Playing Our Song
LATimes - over 4 years
Thirty-four years ago, a composer and two actors bonded over a show. Saturday, they gather at the Pasadena Pops. It's been 34 years since actress Lucie Arnaz, comedian Robert Klein and composer Marvin Hamlisch came together to do "They're Playing Our Song." The lighthearted musical comedy opened in December 1978 at the Ahmanson Theatre and went to Broadway in February 1979, where it played for 1,082 performances. Penned by Neil Simon, the essentially two-character play revolved around the working and personal relationship between a neurotic, funny composer and a quirky lyricist. The musical play was inspired by the romantic relationship between Hamlisch and lyricist Carole Bayer Sager.
