First saw Bill Macy in Paul Zindel's "And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little," (twice) circa Winter 1971, trying out in DC pre-B'way. Justifiably beloved for his Walter Finley but probably underappreciated as an actor. He was wonderful as a foil for the superb company of women: The great Nancy Marchand joined Julie Harris, Estelle Parsons, and Rae Allen, who won a Tony playing Macy's wife Fleur. The play has become a community theater staple. In my youth, I was very fond of it, and also saw the national company in Chicago, with Sandy Dennis and Betty Garrett, and then the bus and truck with -- wait for it -- seriously -- Lillian Roth {Parsons} and Gretchen Wyler {Harris}. Roth wouldn't say "fuckingly."
