Tony and Emmy-winning actress Elaine Stritch, who was scheduled to offer her acclaimed evening of Stephen Sondheim tunes to San Francisco audiences at The RRazz Room May 23-June 10, has postponed her engagement due to illness.

She had to postpone now for May 23? What's wrong?

Elaine is 86 years old. Give her a break. Private business.

I have tickets to see her in LA on the 19th but haven't received any cancellation notice. Does anyone know if that engagement is off as well?

You just can't count on professionalism anymore. Ethel would never have cancelled. At 86, she would have been dead 10 years, but she still would never have cancelled.

Well said, Namo. Who does Elaine think she is? Raven Symone?

I live in SF and I was on the phone with an employee when I found out. The employee said she was under doctor's orders to not perform at all.

If the doctor told her not to perform for over a month, it must be serious.
She's certainly not resting her cords.

I think it's only fair that if a certain Sister can call out on her second week, Stritch can call out on her 5,237th week.

Here's to some rest and a speedy recovery!

She's obviously lazy.
"FlyingMonkey1223 is a sad, chubby guy who appears to be desperate for attention any way he can get it. Every once in a while I feel bad that he thinks he has to resort to racism, homophobia, and sociopathy to get people to notice him, but then I remember that he's just a bad, bad person." - scott68
