Elaine Stritch--TV's first Alice Cramden; show-stopping, hard-living Manhattanite in Sondheim's company; Emmy winner; droll BBC comedienne--seems an ideal interpreter of these wry, witty Parker tales. Indeed, one hears understanding, relish, irony and drama in her distinctive whiskey voice. She lacks the light touch and impeccable timing of Shirley Booth's classic Parker recordings. Booth emphasized humor; Stritch, the poignance underlying the author's veneer of glib urbanity. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 96]
