Goodnight Santa Baby

One of Daddycatcher’s favorite female artists passed away today.  The great Eartha Kitt died today in New York.  She was suffering from colon cancer.  She was 81.

Daddycatcher had the good fortune of meeting Eartha during her tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella when it stopped in Dallas.  She was quite fabulous in the role, if not entirely perfect casting.  She even autographed his cast recording of The Wild Party, which she was nominated for a Tony Award in 2000.

In addition to Cinderella, Daddycatcher caught her in the Broadway revival of Nine when she replaced Chita Rivera in the role of Liliane LaFleur.

We will miss her.  She leaves behind a great legacy and body of work.  Daddycatcher is pouring himself a glass of wine and listening to her definitive recording of “Santa Baby.”

  1. Eartha Kitt contributed a huge amount to the entertainment industry.. and it was so funny to find out that she was a voice in “The Emperor’s New Groove”
