THE SCREENING ROOM: Tony Award Winner and Dear World Star Betty Buckley, A Video Celebration

Buckley has said she was a last-minute replacement for the Stephen Sondheim celebration at Carnegie Hall and, since she had so little time to learn the arrangement, spent a good deal of time in her dressing room praying she wouldn't be the evening's disappointment. Turns out, she was one of the highlights. I remember watching the PBS broadcast and being moved to tears by her performance of "Children Will Listen" backed by the Harlem Boys Choir. Nearly 20 years later, I'm equally moved.
