Adorable nephew Sam and I attended a fundraiser for the Center, called Broadway Backwards, where women sing men's show tunes, and dudes sing ladies' songs. There were many highlights, and the host, Seth Rudetsky, managed to create a few himself--including an extended bit with Betty Buckley (Cats? Eight is Enough? you pick) about her choice of knee socks in the movie "Carrie." Which included a TV monitor, stop action DVD work, and Buckley singing from the musical "Carrie."
It was one of those nights when Richard Kind (Spin City) singing "When You Got It, Flaunt It" from "The Producers," complete with the hip bumps Uma shoulda done in the movie was just one more glorious thing that made me very glad to live in New York. Rosie O'Donnell, I'm sure the snow was thick, but you really missed a moment.
