I will never forget the Broadway shows my Mom brought me to see when I was a kid, and she blames my whole career on that early exposure to Ethel Merman, Diahann Carroll, Barbara Cook, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews, Carol Channing and Mary Martin. I went to the School of Divas.

Becoming friends with Bette Davis

See My Fair Lady on Broadway (and put it on film!)

when I read above I immediately thought “see My Fair Lady with Julie Andrews on Broadway" (and once back in 1956, I’d see Gypsy with Ethel Merman too)

Ethel Merman and the Muppets

Ethel Merman in “Happy Hunting”, Rosalind Russell in “Auntie Mame”, Judy Holliday in “Bells Are Ringing” - drawing by Al Hirschfeld
1956: what a year for Broadway *__*
(I would have add Julie Andrews in “My fair lady”, but it’s true she  wasn’t yet an established star like the three above)
