Q. Was it as much fun as it looked to play an outrageous
A.Yes, it was. It was. It was fun. It

Schumacher: I want to say something on behalf
of the women in this production. You know, Katherine Hepburn once

Q. Can you tell us when you

play any other musical role in any other musical, what would it

Q. I believe that you sing Learn To Be Lonely over the

Driver: No, Andrew didn't write that song for

get me to sing it. So it was good. So I was very happy to be on
the soundtrack finally.
