Elaine Stritch Discusses Onstage Orgasm & More
Irascible, irreplaceable and iconic Broadway legend Elaine Stritch discusses her incredibly deep passion for the theatre as well as offers some particularly surprising revelations as part of a new interview.
Stritch reiterates a story she recently revealed to her former 30 ROCK co-star Alec Baldwin on his radio program, WNYC's HERE'S THE THING, discussing her first orgasm as having actually occurred while she was onstage - in Edward Albee's searing dramatic masterpiece WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, no less.
"Absolutely true," Stritch candidly relates of the major life event. "I don't have to go into detail. If you want anything more, you'll have to go to another actress. I don't think she can top that."
And, as a trained actress, how did she deal with the involuntary chemical and physical incident in real time? "I used it! I made it part of my performance," she says.
"I'm not Actors Studio-ing my way into the hearts of millions. I'm just saying this happened. So, therefore, I must have been very up and into that role," Stritch assiduously asserts.
Unfortunately - or, perhaps, fortunately - though: "It never happened again," Stritch concludes.
So, will she ever return to New York for one more show? "No, I don't miss New York... I love New York. I went to New York to become an actress and I did it. And I won all the awards known to man. And I'm happy. And I came home. I came, I saw, I conquered. And it feels great. Are you kidding?"
Well, if anybody definitely isn't kidding about that, it's Miss Stritch, kiddo!
