Liza Minnelli and Michael Feinstein salute Lucy for her birthday. 

 

 

I saw that pop up yesterday and thought, how sweet.

I read a recent interview where Lindsay Mendez, this year's Tony winner for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, cites Lucy's work (including her MGM stuff!) as a great inspiration.

Random Lindsay Mendez-related anecdote that I just remembered:

Mendez won the Tony for her great performance in the revival of Carousel (she was certainly the best actress of the bunch). When I saw the revival, the great Renee Fleming made her entrance to thunderous applause and started to sing "June Is Bustin' Out All Over". My brain immediately froze, and I thought "Oh my gosh! Renee Fleming forgot the lyrics and she's ad-libbing!" But that wasn't the case. I only thought she was singing the wrong lyrics because I'm more familiar with Leslie Uggams' stellar rendition than I am with the actual, correct words. When "rum and river rishes" didn't pass through my ear, I thought something had gone very wrong.

Wow, even the MGM work, cool!

I can't believe this quick clip is making the rounds like it is. If you listen to what Ricki says, she never even talked to Lucy. Geez, give the lady a break. And who cares if she was smoking, that's what she did. Ricki makes it sound like Lucy came in, acted like some diva and yelled at all of them.

That's pretty amazing! She has exquisite taste.
