an emotional roller coaster from start to finish
This usually isn’t the first thing people think of when they think of Elaine Stritch, but one of my very favorite performances of hers will always be the finale to her brilliant one-woman show Elaine Stritch At Liberty, a heartfelt performance of the song "Something Good." The song, with music and lyrics by Richard Rodgers, was of course written for the 1965 film adaptation of The Sound of Music; where it’s boring and out of place there, here it is used with alarming and devastating poignancy. This is Elaine Stritch to me: a performer with a knack of selling any song, if it was the best of Sondheim or if she had to elevate the material, and making a deeply personal connection to it. Brava.
