Pandemic Ed. 003 – Ali Gordon talks Elaine Stritch & Sondheim

April 1, 2021

From the depths of Pandemic 2020, the Repeater fellas sit down with Ali Gordon (UCB, SECOND BEST: A D&D Adventure) to talk about Elaine Stritch’s iconic performance of “I’m Still Here” from Stephen Sondheim’s 80th Birthday Concert. With a background in musical theater, Ali educates the boys on several touchstones of Broadway, including the lasting appeal of Sondheim. They also talk about Judy Kuhn’s performance of “Vanilla Ice Cream” from She Loves Me and Michael Jeter’s performance of “Let’s Raise A Glass” from Grand Hotel, which are similarly delightful. Ali doubts her taste in music, but you will learn she has excellent taste, especially if you also happen to enjoy Phish. If you love musical theater or live performance in general, you will deeply relate to this conversation.
