Bernadette Peters:
"The first time I saw Elaine Stritch was when she was starring in Company and when she was doing 'The Ladies Who Lunch,' I thought, 'WOW! What is she doing and how is she doing that?' It was just so startling and so amazing! I'll never forget that performance.

Then, of course, working with her [in A Little Night Music]. I've never known anyone who was more supportive of other actors. She's so terrific and I truly love her a lot!"
