The glorious Betty Buckley turns 74 today – we celebrate with some great performances
This lady, who celebrates her 74th birthday today, is simply one of a kind.
She had appeared on Broadway in Pippin and 1776 before gaining widespread fame as Abby Bradford on ABC’s Eight is Enough. When the show left the air in 1981, it was back to Broadway and the Tony-winning role of Grizabella in Cats.
Other shows followed including Song and Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Triumph of Love and as a smash replacement for Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard. More recently, she starred in the title role in the national tour of Hello, Dolly!
