Ms. Broadway December 2019: The Joannes of Company

Last month's look back at the all of the Broadway Elder Prices proved to be quite popular, so we thought that we'd honor all those ladies who lunch by lifting a glass to all who have played the iconic Joanne in Company. Some pretty amazing women have played the role as you'll see. From the brilliant original Elaine Stritch all the way to the upcoming Broadway turn by the equally brilliant Patti LuPone. (We are reminded of the Sondheim Birthday Celebration moment when Elaine gave a standing ovation to Patti after the latter's blistering "Ladies Who Lunch." Icons doing iconic things - the perfect reason to be named Ms. Broadway December 2019. Everybody rise!
