Why are they always together? I saw them at 54 Below together in a booth. And now they're on Theater Talk together for her birthday? Seems odd...?

Maybe he threw bouquets at her, and maybe she praised his charm too much.

I saw the two of them together at Book of Mormon back in August.

They became close during Night Music. Don't really see what the issue is.

What? Were they making out or something?

.....and who wouldn't want to be BBFs with the Stritch?

When will the Theater Talk episode air? Tomorrow?

You're right - how awful that they are friends. How unusual that 2 people in the same show became friends.

He's clearly just cozying up to her knowing that it's only a matter of time before he inherits the leggings and white shirts, not to mention the hats.

Stritch has always enjoyed the company of pretty and talented men - why should being 87/88 change anything? :)

Also, the relationship between a young *rhymes with fey* man and a much older lady is a very special thing. And when that lady is Elaine Stritch? Come on...

I'm not implying anything. Just seems strange. I can see them hanging out together, but being on the same episode of a talk show now too? I don't know. Just strikes me as odd.

It's Theatre Talk, not Good Morning America.

Herdlicka and Stritch are very close- he's like assistant, grandson, son, and confidante all in one.

I think it's awesome. I have a lot of friends who are older, both sexes. I enjoy their company, advice, etc. I'd gladly be seen in public with them.

He's gay, darling, so that would make things difficult. I'm sure they're great friends and companions, and (like you meant to type) why not?

Does anyone still wear a hat?

Aw, thanks, Zep.

It's not at all unusual for someone of Hunter's age to be closer to a grandparent than to a parent. I know nothing of his personal life, and it's none of my business, but being purely specualtive, it's possible that Stritchy is fulfilling that role for him. I have kids in their 20s, and I'm fairly certain they'd rather spend time with her than with me.

As long as it does not end like Harold and Maude.

They became exceptionally close during ALNM. Hunter was in from the beginning, and then Stritch came in to replace Angela. He always did his best to help her (she struggled mightily with lines, if you recall) and he treated her with the respect she deserved. And she became a mentor to him, and if you were his age, just starting a Broadway career, could you have a better friend or mentor than Elaine Stritch?

Seen him at 54 Below too with his STUD of a boyfriend - doubt he's dating Elaine. They could make broadway babies however. Herdlicka is seen with everyone all the time so like whats the deal with him and Elaine IMO-- nothing they worked together!

His boyfriend recently left as the lead in the Cirque du Soleil show, "Kooza", a role he actually created himself. Great dancer and gymnast, wouldn't be surprised if he wanted to start working in NY.

Harold and Maude? Pfft! That's a happy ending- it COULD end like "Bernie," the lesser-known black comedy about an older woman's friendship with a charming young *rhymes with fey*

Herdlick Ryan Hunterka.

Sounds like an insult, doesn't it?

Now I kind of wish they'd do a 54 Below act together.

He's gay? Not according to his Facebook profile.

Yes and it says "In A Relationship" . Not a thing of gay or straight. Good job Obama!

I'm always curious about three named people when it's clear they third name isn't to distinguish from another person in the union.
