A great Broadway and Hollywood legend has died aged 92 after suffering illness for some time.
She brought her one woman show to the Adelphi in the late 70s and that was the only time most people in the UK would have sen her live. I knew then that she was an amazing performer then and she continued to perform the show around the world until the early 90s.

This is the show she brought to the Adelphi for a limited instant sellout season.

I enjoyed her in the Wiz singing "Believe in Yourself"

Did anyone see the Adelphi show?

I did, yes, and I frequently listen to the stunning double CD. A true class act.

The CD has been on my ipod for a couple of years, and i did play it this morning on the way to work.

It was such a shame she never got her due from MGM in the early days. She was great in Cabin in the Sky, but the studio decided to throw her into featured musicals peformances in scenes that could be taken out for cinemas in the south. What a travesty!!!
