The Oscar was for her performance as Anita in the 1962 motion picture West Side Story. The two Emmys were for a 1977 variety appearance on "The Muppet Show" and a 1978 dramatic guest appearance on "The Rockford Files." The Tony was for her 1973 triumph on Broadway as Googie Gomez in The Ritz. The Grammy was for her 1972 performance on "The Electric Company Album" for children, which was based on the long-running television show of the same name.  Other film credits include Singin' in the Rain and The King and I, while additional Broadway credits include The Odd Couple, The Last of the Red Hot Lovers and The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window.

Among those present for the show's opening night were: Arlene Dahl, Donna McKechnie, Liliane Montevecchi, Joe Franklin, Phyllis Newman, Margaret Whiting, Amy Tan, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach, and Joy Behar.
