The show is the culmination of a personal and professional relationship that Stritch has had with the composer that has spanned the better part of four decades. Rob Bowman serves as musical director, with orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick.
Among the guests that joined Stritch for opening night were Arlene Dahl, Christine Ebersole, James Levine, Natasha Lyonne, Mike Nichols, Rosie O'Donnell, and Robert Osborne.
Check back tomorrow for a review of the show.
