Just having written about Long Beach Civic Light Opera in re Bebe Neuwirth in their "Chicago," I am reminded that Stritch reprised her role as Melba in 1991 for LBCLO, also during Barry Brown's tenure. The night I saw it, Stritch got tremendous entrance applause, which she shut down by Stritching "Wait! I haven't done a damn thing yet." When her number ended and the applause went on and on, she shrugged and said "Jeez. I'll find my way out," and exited upstage, leaving us applauding an empty set.
