MIAMI - Few have more connections in the Broadway ecosystem than Seth Rudetsky. He played the piano for Audra McDonald's senior recital at Juilliard - long before she was a star. He's Patti LuPone's go-to accompanist and Tina Fey attended the opening night of his new off-Broadway show.
NEW YORK - Elaine Stritch just loves the documentary about her. Adores it, actually. There's just one thing she'd change.
For a documentary subject as forceful as Elaine Stritch, filmmakers may need to turn to nature - a typhoon might do it - to find anything approximate. Even the camera must warily keep its distance in "Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me." She warns its operator when he gets too close: "I don't know whether this is a skin commercial, or what."
