NOTES

On her star-making turn as a mermaid in "Miranda": "I was quite an athlete, my muscles were strong from dancing, so the tail was just fine. I swam like a porpoise."

As for her taking on the role of Madame Armfeldt for the 1991 revival of "A Little Night Music" after having played her daughter 18 years before: "To tell you the truth, I hadn't liked that part (originally Hermione Gingold's), and I wasn't sure if I could listen to someone else singing 'Send in the Clowns', the song Stephen Sondheim wrote for me." --Glynis Johns quoted in the Daily News, June 14, 1998.
