Barbra Streisand was given the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin award at Avery Fisher Hall Monday night, hailed from the stage as a “true legend and hometown girl.”
“Ever since I can remember, I’ve been called ‘bossy and opinionated,’ ” said Streisand, the first woman to write, direct, produce and star in an American film.
“Well, I guess I am. Three cheers for bossy women!”

She was handed the award, which honored her achievements in nearly a half-century of film, by her friend, former President Bill Clinton. Pals and costars paid tribute to her at the FSLC’s 40th Chaplin gala.

“She’s a good lady and a helluva broad!” said Liza Minnelli before serenading the star with “Isn’t This Better” from “Funny Lady.”
Streisand, who turns 71 Wednesday, said that growing up in Brooklyn she “always wanted to be an actress.” When she couldn’t get auditions, “music saved me.”

Andy Warhol @ Christie's: Studio 54 online-only sale celebrates Andy's legacy at the nightclub

NEW YORK, NY.- Following the success of the first online only sale of Andy Warhol @ Christie’s which doubled its pre-sale estimate at $2.3m, Christie’s is pleased to announce details about the second online-only sale. For one week, from Friday, April 26 through Friday, May 3, collectors around the world will have the opportunity to log in and bid online for more than 215 paintings, drawings, photographs and prints by Pop Art’s superstar, Andy Warhol.

This sale will feature works dedicated to Andy’s legacy at the infamous nightclub Studio 54. Estimates range from $1,500 to $70,000, offering both seasoned collectors and first-time buyers extraordinary global access to Warhol’s work. The timed online format allows clients to browse, bid, receive instant updates if another bid exceeds theirs, organize shipping, and pay from anywhere in the world.

THE LEGENDARY STUDIO 54
“If the 1970s was a decade of heedless optimism, then Studio 54 was its glittering epicentre. During its reign as New York's number one hot spot to see and be seen, it was the place where paparazzi mingled with celebrity, where highbrow danced with low-brow, where pop art and fine art talked into the wee hours of the morning.” — Anthony Haden- Guest.

Located at 254 West 54th Street in Manhattan, the nightclub was founded by four equal partners, Steve Rubell, Ian Schrager, Tim Savage and Jack Dushey. Among the many celebrities present during the opening night on April 26, 1977 were Mick Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Jerry Hall, Diana Vreeland, Halston, Brooke Shields, Debbie Harry, newlyweds Donald and Ivana Trump, newly engaged Rick Hilton and Kathy Richards, and many other well-known party-goers. Hordes scrambled to gain entry but only a few got past the door. Some celebrities, including Warren Beatty, Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Henry Winkler, Cher, and Frank Sinatra were unable to get in, in part due to Studio 54's elusive doorman, Marc Benecke.

A week after the opening, the nightclub celebrated Bianca Jagger’s 27th birthday. Bianca entered on a white horse and the resulting publicity firmly established Studio 54 as the preferred nightclub for celebrities, including Michael Jackson, Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger, Peter Beard, Elton John, Truman Capote, Jerry Zipkin, Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawcett, Lauren Hutton, Liz Smith, Marisa Berenson, Divine, Jack Nicholson, Nick Rhodes, Hugh Hefner, Mariel Hemingway, Diane von Fürstenberg, Richard Gere, and Matt Dillon. Some of the world's most famous performers also performed their new songs: Donna Summer, Grace Jones, Gloria Gaynor, Sylvester, The Village People, Cheryl Lynn, Brooklyn Dreams, James Brown, Phyllis Hyman, Amii Stewart, Chic, The Ritchie Family, Rick James, Stephanie Mills, Roberta Kelly, and Arthur Russell all sang their most famous songs during the partying.

Andy Warhol is widely recognized as one of the defining figures of 20th century art and culture, as well as a philanthropist of extraordinary generosity. As an artist, he unabashedly embraced the populist and the commercial. As a philanthropist, he insured that his giving would extend past his death by establishing The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which received almost the entirety of his estate. Proceeds from this sale and all subsequent sales under the partnership benefit the Warhol Foundation’s grant-making programs in support of artists and non-profit arts organizations.

The old dear hunter: Robert De Niro rushed in to kiss Liza Minnelli at the premiere of Mistaken For Strangers in New York on Wednesday

What a nice surprise! Liza Minnelli's electric blue dress raises eyebrows...

The star of stage and screen made sure that she was unmissable as she sashayed along the red carpet at the The Hollywood Reporters 35 Most Powerful People In Media event.
She was joined at the event at New York's Four Seasons Grill Room by Michael Feinstein, and she flashed a grin - framed by hot pink lips - at him as they held hands and made their way inside.

Photo Coverage: The Stars Come Out for Elaine Stritch's Farewell Cabaret - Movin' Over and Out

http://broadwayworld.com/article/Photo-Coverage-The-Stars-Come-Out-for-Elaine-Stritchs-Farewell-Cabaret-Movin-Over-and-Out-20130403




 A slew of stars came out last night to the Cafe Carlyle to bid farewell to the legendary Elaine Stritch, who began her last New York run. Her new show, Elaine Stritch at the Carlyle: Movin' Over and Out, a freeform evening of story and song, will play for one week only. This will be the final chance to see Ms. Stritch - who has been dubbed the Carlyle's own "Octogenarian Eloise" - give one of her now-legendary performances at her home venue, before she leaves the Carlyle Hotel and the city of New York for good. (Ms. Stritch will be relocating to her home state of Michigan.) Elaine Stritch has played 4 sold-out engagements at the Café Carlyle over the past 7 years.
She told the New York Times: "I loved being on Broadway, but performing has become exhausting, and I just don't want to live in New York anymore. I'm just sick of the competition in New York, the feeling that I always have to rehearse to keep up my performance. I don't feel like rehearsing, even though it should be my favorite thing in the world to do. I just don't have the energy, darling. I'm 88! I don't look or always feel it, but I'm 88!"
On what to expect from her final show, Stritch commented: "Sondheim is a devil, with those lyrics to keep straight, and part of me just wants to tell stories. I'd love to just tell jokes that my dad kept in his wallet."
Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street @ Madison Avenue). Elaine Stritch will play Tuesday, April 2 through Saturday, April 6 at 8:45PM. There is a $125 cover charge per person and $85 bar seating per person. For additional information, visit www.thecarlyle.com.
