FROM BARRY:

Broadway lost one of the great talents of the stage last week.

Elaine Stritch was one of a kind.

The moment she hit the stage, all eyes were on her. A true star.

She was one of the stars of Stephen Sondheim’s ground-breaking musical, “Company,” back in the 70s.

I was so crazy for “Company” that I “second-acted” it 17 times.

Since I couldn’t afford to buy tickets, “second acting” is when you sneak into the theater during intermission and watch the second act from the standing room section.

Elaine would blow the place apart at the end of the second act with her unforgettable rendition of “The Ladies Who Lunch.”

Her one woman show, “Elaine Stritch At Liberty,” was a huge hit and ran for over a year. The show was riveting. Her life was riveting. She was riveting.

I met her backstage after seeing “At Liberty.”

We shook hands, I gushed about how great I thought the show was, and how I loved all of her work through the years.

She looked at me and said, “Thanks. What’s your name again?”

HA HA HA!! That’ll bring you down a peg! I loved her!

RIP Elaine. We’ll miss you.

Exclusive Manilow Video Available NOW!

It’s a new month, which means there is a new video on www.ManilowArchives.com! Chosen by Barry himself…this month’s video is from Barry’s recent concert in Southampton, UK.

You can preview it and watch it at www.ManilowArchives.com.

Here is what Barry has to say about this month’s selection:

Hi Everyone!

This month’s video goes all the way back to… two months ago - May 2014!

It’s not a video that I would exactly call “from the archives,” but it IS in the archives now and it’s a show that we’ve gotten lots of response about.

This month’s video is that very wet, very cold, very late, very amazing Southampton show that I wrote about in my last note.

Once again, let me say that the audience was heroic. They must have been sitting in water, they must have been as cold as we were on the stage, and many of them had been through a frustrating ticket fiasco.

But through all of that, they were a wonderful audience. I’ll always be grateful to these lovely people for staying and for being such a great audience.

One technical apology: The wind and the rain wreaked havoc on the lighting system. At around ten minutes into the show, the back video wall totally blew. So you’ll be seeing a black screen behind the band where there should have been video and color.

Looking back on that mini-tour, Southampton has turned out to be one of my favorite memories of the tour.

Thanks again to the folks who were there and I hope you’ve all gotten over your double pneumonia!

Enjoy!

Love,

Barry

THROWBACK THURSDAY!

A Note from Barry:

As we all prepare to celebrate the holiday weekend with family and friends, there is one 4th of July that I will never forget!

I was honored to be asked to close one of the most important and patriotic weekends ever…the re-dedication of the Statue of Liberty on July 4, 1986.

It was a magical night and one of my proudest arrangements and performances with the Boston Pops Orchestra conducted by John Williams.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
