Kaye Ballard in the audience at WIW#0
Posted: 11/14/05 at 12:30pm
Yesterday's matinee of Women in White: Kaye Ballard and friends in the lobby. Out gal Kaye looking absolutely wonderful, silverly blond hair, beautifully dressed replete with stunning scarf, smiling and making small talk with fans. I would've given anything if the cast of the dreadful WIW would've yielded the stage and let us spend a couple of hours with the fabulous Miss Ballard.

Gosh, I did not know she was still alive! I remember seeing her in "Mothers-In-Law" with Eve Arden (was that the name of the TV show??).

Yup. She was in that televison show back in the late 60's. She also has quite a resume of Broadway shows: CARNIVAL, SO LONG 174th STREET, MOLLY, THE APPLE TREE, as well as FOLLIES at the Paper Mill. Her cabaret act at Maxim's a few years ago was a joy

Just curious if you are Kaye Ballard's publicist? She is celebrating her eightieth birthday today. Wonder what show she is seeing?

I met her at the bar during intermission at Taboo, Jan 2004.
We had a drink together and talked, it was such an amazing few minutes. After the show, at stage door, she came up to me to tell me it was nice meeting me !!! Great talent,Great Lady
Happy Belated Birthday Kaye !

My dream is to see her in a musical before I (or she) die. I'm still pissed that the original tour of "Full Monty" shuttered.

If you haven't heard Kaye sing on Broadway in her prime, you have to listen to "Lazy Afternoon" from "The Golden Apple" (1954).

Holy crap, that girl could sing. Such a steamy, beautiful ballad... from Ballard.

Find it, if you haven't heard it yet. You'll have a new appreciation for her talent.

I'm a huge Kaye Ballard fan. Her "Humming" from Carnival! is pure magic.

Nice, hushpuppy, that you had to throw a WIW slam in there. Really necessary, really sweet.

I love me some Kaye Ballard....


Did anyone else see the episode of Family Guy when Peter goes off on a tangent something like this, "I'm working up something real special, and I don't mean special like the disabled boy next door, I mean like special K. And with that, whatever happened to Kaye Ballard? You know if you had a cold and said Ballard it would soung like mallard..."

I'm sorry, I'm obsessed with that show...

She was great as "Jeanette" in "The Full Monty". Before that, the last thing I remember her in was Salome in "The Robber Bridegroom" - she was great in that too! (I think that is out somewhere on DVD - I know it was proshot, for showtime I believe.

I saw her do CHICAGO with Bebe Neuwirth and Juliet Prowse...this was before the Broadway Revival.

Kaye Ballard is the REAL DEAL. A musical theatre actress who knows her business. If you ever get a chance to see her do anything on stage, don't hesitate!
