Frances Delays Stritch's Florida Engagement

News   Frances Delays Stritch's Florida Engagement Hurricane Frances has blown the Florida premiere of Elaine Stritch at Liberty all the way from Oct. 5-10 to Nov. 9-14.

The show was to have debuted next month at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. "Because of the lingering aftermath of Hurricane Frances," said Jupiter artistic director Todd Alan Price, "including minor damage at the theatre and a battered community that is primarily focused on recovery efforts at this time, it would not be fiscally prudent to pursue this major financial undertaking next week."

Elaine Stritch at Liberty traces Stritch's career, which includes roles in Company, The Little Foxes, Bus Stop, A Delicate Balance, Sail Away and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Song titles include "The Ladies Who Lunch," "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Broadway Baby," "Zip," "Why Do the Wrong People Travel?" and "I'm Still Here." The show received a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event as well as two Drama Desk Awards — Outstanding Solo Performance for Stritch and Outstanding Book of a Musical for Stritch and John Lahr. George C. Wolfe directed the Broadway run.
