Round 1: Feinstein takes a right hander to Edna with the snarky remark, “I wish Ms. Edna well. I’ve heard of her."
Round 2: Edna fights back with a similarly vitriolic slap, “While I was saddened to hear that Mr. Feinstein did not heed my sage advice to change the title of his show, I’m overjoyed to hear that he at least took my suggestion to open his show after mine. I’m sure Mrs. Feinstein is very proud of her son.”
Of course, as many have speculated (referencing a Michael Riedel piece from July mentioning the buzz over the two actually taking the stage together), this is probably a PR stunt leading up to some kind of grand announcement. Nevertheless, it's been fun watching the wild speculation and suggestions on how to make these two kiss and makeup. One particularly funny post from TONY's Adam Feldman suggests some other Broadway projects follow suit with mash-ups of their own. My personal favorite was a Star Wars-themed Yoda show entitled "About Me It's All About". Genius.
If these two can ever bury the hatchet, perhaps some of these classic duets should be on the song list!
Anything you can do...
A question I'm sure Michael Feinstein is asking himself this very minute: Why Can't A Woman Be More Like a Man?
And if these two kiss and makeup?! The perfect show stopper!
