I saw Elaine Page starring in the London/West End production of "Chess" in the mid-'80s. She was sensational. I'd love to see her in concert.
I saw her as Norma in London and New York with Jack Barrowman as Joe both times.
Patti/r1 made laugh.
OP, I was there too - I would've replied from my iphone but Datalounge was in (surprise!) Primetime.
She was excellent tonight; I'm not a big fan - my partner is - but I was impressed by how she can still belt it out even at age 65.
I thought her story about finding the stray cat the night she first heard "Memory" was cute.
She was AMAZING!! I was there too!
Paige’s backstage stories were very engaging as well. Her story about Dame Judi Dench injuring herself two days before Cats was to start previews and having to learn the song “Memory” with a different set of lyrics every night .
What about Ellen Page!?
Paige was great as Norma Desmond. Like her better than Glenn Close who won the Tony.
