"I have a natural input fear of myself that goes in front of me. It’s almost like someone says every time I walk into the room, ‘Ladies and gentlemen…Elaine Stritch. There’s something that says get out of my way, it’s going to be my turn, because you need the love of the audience. My assistant/friend, Marge, says you can’t live without an audience. That’s why I’m questionable about this move. I don’t know if it is going to work or not."
