More Breaking News About Elaine’s Hair!
My apologies to one of my faithful readers who emailed me about my post congratulating Theater Talk for standing up to Elaine Stritch’s demand for payment of her hair expenses.
It turns out that Theater Talk isn’t the only one who refused to pay for Elaine’s hair.
Here’s the scoop:
In 2002, Elaine appeared at The Drama League Awards. She requested payment of her hair bill in advance. They refused.
So, WDED? (What did Elaine do?)
She protested the “frugality” of the show by showing up in curlers!
