BWW Blog: The Night Elton John Told Elaine Stritch, 'This is Your Song' - and She Kept It
by BWW News Desk - Aug 04, 2014

As Adam Feldman pointed out in his wonderful Time Out New York piece on Elaine Stritch, 'Everyone who ever met Elaine Stritch-hell, anyone who ever saw her perform-has a Stritch story.'

In July 2004, Elton John was performing a symphonic concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall and I took my brother Rob. We had great seats, like tenth row center. Halfway through the beautiful set, Elton paused before 'Your Song' and dedicated it to 'One of the greatest theatrical personalities ever to grace the Broadway stage..' Suddenly, we look up about ten feet to our right, and Elaine Stritch is on her feet basking in the glow of a spotlight and Elton's uncharacteristically sincere (and long) introduction. 'Oh Rob, look at her. She's so cute, with those huge black glasses and that big hat. How sweet for her to have this little moment,' I said to my brother. Indeed, in those initial seconds of acknowledgment, Elaine seemed to light up from within and grow a full six inches, like a plant under a grow light on steroids. (more...)
