shoo sho, shoo sho.

Oh, you two are dreary...
Cheyenne Jackson tickled me. AFTER ordering SoMMS a drink but NOT tickling him, and hanging out with Girly in his dressing room (where he DIDN'T tickle her) but BEFORE we got married. To others. And then he tweeted Boobs. He also tweeted he's good friends with some chick on "The Voice" who just happens to be good friends with Tink's ex. And I'm still married. Oh, and this just in: "Pettiness, spite, malice ....Such ugly emotions... So sad." - After Eight, talking about MEEEEEEEE!!! I'm so honored! :-)

I won't try to check out the story since it's nio doubt an urban legend, but an old actor once told me that during the run of Peter Pan, When Tinkerbell got sick, Peter would ask the audience if they believed in fairies, as that was the only thing that could save poor Tink. When there was a celebrity in the audience, Peter would call out to them: "Senator Longworth, Do YOU believe in Fairies?" "Surely YOU believe in Fairies, Babe Ruth!" Things like that. When Bea Lillie first attended, Peter called out to her from the stage "Beatrice Lillie! Do YOU believe in Fairies?" She yelled back "Believe in Fairies? Dear, I know hundreds of them!"
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

There are several versions of this story, but the one I've heard most often is that Lillie was on tour in Chicago and had gone to get her hair done. Mrs. Armour, of the meat packing family, was miffed that "a mere actress" had been taken ahead of her and said so, quite loudly. Lillie kept her cool, but when she was ready she said, quite loudly as well: "You can tell that butcher's wife that Lady Peel has finished."

I was a big fan of Bea Lillie when she appeared on the Ed Sullivan show. I remember her singing - ". . . the biggest aspridellia(sp.?) tree in the world. . ." but can't remember any of the words.

"For the next scene, I want the audience to imagine far too much..."

I was really pissed at "TheatreWeek" magazine for not even having an article about her when she died.

I have a theatre book with a picture of her from the "Ziegfeld Follies of 1957" where she's playing a Geisha who gets some bad news and she has look on her face that always make me crack up.
