Deborah Rush was so brilliant in that show, playing clueless, looking for contacts! Dorothy Loudon was a hoot. I still wish I had brought a can of sardines on which to get her autograph after the show and see what her reaction would have been! Linda Thorson was a lot of fun as the gal who just loved spreading and seeing gossip play out. Victor Garber took a helluva tumble down the stairs at one point. The whole cast was great.

The revival just didn't work for me -- the only standout was T.R. Knight and Patti LuPone's entrance a la Norma Desmond after having locked herself in the dressing room. But a lot of the gags, which seemed fairly organic in the original, felt almost mechanical in the revival.
