Betty Buckley chats with Greg In Hollywood about new show, latest roles, gay fans, Johnny Carson, and Patti LuPone
The great Betty Buckley is in town for a series of concerts. I saw her earlier this year in Hello, Dolly! at the Pantages in Hollywood and a few years before that in Grey Gardens at the Ahmanson. But I have never seen this Broadway legend perform in concert.
That is about to change.
The Tony Award winner wraps up a three-night run on Saturday night at the Samueli Theater in Costa Mesa which is part of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts then will perform a concert on Nov. 2 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.
Our mutual friend, publicist Jeff Ballard, arranged for us to chat on the phone earlier today — arrangements he made while receiving cancer treatments.
