5.0 out of 5 stars A MEMORABLE EVENING WITH BEA....., June 2 2003
This review is from: ARTHUR, BEA - BEA ARTHUR ON BROADWAY (Audio CD)
An intimate, up-front encounter with a fabulous woman. That's this CD of Bea Arthur's one-woman stage show. That recognizable baritone can make you laugh, cry, laugh again and always keeps you spellbound as you listen to her tales of a very colorful career and her takes on her favorite songs. Accompanied by old friend and pianist Billy Goldenberg, she gently but firmly takes the audience into her capable hands and holds them there until she says good-bye. You want this evening to keep going. It's bittersweet when it ends. From her daffy lamb recipe through her remembrances and songs, she's one of the reasons there's nothing like live theater. Hilarious, touching, surprising and bawdy---you won't go wrong with this treasure. I was surprised by her faithful rendition of "Pirate Jenny" from "The Threepenny Opera"---her tribute to Lotte Lenya. This lady's oh-so-much-more than "Maude" or Dorothy from "The Golden Girls". Oh, yes. A lot more. Get this. And don't miss her memories of Tallulah Bankhead.
