Kitty Carlisle Hart

The quintessential Grande Dame of the American theater, Kitty Carlisle Hart, 96-years-young, with her museum-quality smile and million-dollar legs, is coming to the Woodruff Arts Center’s 14th Street Playhouse in a strictly limited engagement, November 16th through November 19th. You remember Kitty Carlisle Hart: she became a household name during her twenty-year stint as a gracious, witty panelist on television’s “To Tell the Truth.” Kitty is also readily remembered from Broadway’s and Hollywood’s "A Night at the Opera" with the Marx Brothers, the Woody Allen film “Radio Days” and "Six Degrees of Separation."

Kitty Carlisle, a name she picked out of a phone book, is fond of saying, “I am the oldest working girl in show business; I’ve lied about my age so often, I can’t remember.” But she can remember practically everyone who is anyone in the arts, politics and society. She loves to tell backstage stories on Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers, George Gershwin, Oscar Hammerstein, Jimmy Stewart, Lionel Barrymore, Gregory Peck, Judy Garland, James Mason, the Marx Brothers, Woody Allen, Will Smith, Stockard Channing, Stephen Sondheim, and many other celebrities Kitty has known as colleagues and friends.I hope you and your friends will join this witty, “ideal cocktail-party guest” in her live show as she sings, performs and utterly charms as she has recently in New York, Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Kitty holds the house record for attendance at Feinstein's in New York. Her other recent performances have been completely sold out, leaving patrons scrambling for tickets! Her shows are now on sale at the Woodruff Center Box Office, Peachtree at 15th Street, 404-733-5000.Tickets are $35, $50, $75 or $100 (which includes a reception to meet the diva). Discounts are available for groups of ten or more by calling Lee Armstrong at 404-355-1492. Please tell all your friends about this extraordinary event and we'll see you at Kitty’s Party off Peachtree -- 14th St. Playhouse -- MAINSTAGE

Love to watch her in old episodes of "Whats My Line". The really vintage ones.
