I've been a fan for some time. Her performance in King and I was plain wonderful, and in perhaps one of the most beautiful productions I've ever seen. Also like Wonderful Town, but was mesmerized by her in Lovemusik.
But the best performance I've ever seen of hers was as the guest performer at the annual Garden Party hosted by The Center. I only saw her rehearsal as I was volunteering at the event that evening. She sang Cole Porter's I Happen To Like New York and it was the greatest performance of hers I'd ever witnessed. Just breathtaking. Anybody else catch it?
And, yes, I wish she were performing more frequently. I'd love to see her in a cabaret setting, and if she recorded, I'd buy it. But I also understand and fully respect her priorities, and wish her and her daughter all the best.
