If you haven't read Charles Isherwood's wonderful tribute to legendary singing actress Elaine Stritch, please do (to paraphrase Ethel Mertz, he said everything I wanted to, but couldn't). He mentions this poignant performance by Elaine Stritch of "Something Good" from the movie version of "The Sound of Music," which made me want to rush out and hear it. I thought you'd want to hear it, too. (Sorry the audio/visual quality is poor -- the performance is still priceless.)

AS THE song goes, what are you doing New Year's? And here's what you should be doing if you are near Manhattan. The great, the grand, the impossible, the improbable, the talent-saturated Elaine Stritch opens at the Carlyle in a new version of her show "At Liberty," and you can see this incredible woman Jan. 1-19. It costs $125 to see her performance, and a delicious dinner is separate, costly but worth it. Once in a lifetime! It's easy for me to say this; I have known Miss Stritch since 1953, and she was already a big star back then.

The LGBT community got a pretty big nod from Facebook this week. To supplement its mammoth social network (which turned 10 years old Tuesday), Facebook launched a new iPhone app Monday called "Paper," which gives users a simpler, cleaner way to browse their news feeds. To read posts or share articles, users swipe from left to right, only expanding links or discussions that interest them. But Facebook Paper also contains 19 topic-focused sections that resemble Flipboard's digital magazine layout.

There's a wrenching scene in D A Pennebaker's 1970 documentary about recording the cast album of Stephen Sondheim's musical, Company. Actress Elaine Stritch is trying to record the song "The Ladies Who Lunch." After several faulty attempts, she experiences something bordering on a nervous breakdown. Given that painful scene, one might expect Pennebaker to be the last filmmaker Stritch would want to make a documentary about her. But when her one-woman show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty, was on Broadway two seasons ago, it was Stritch herself who approached Pennebaker about making a film.

On the heels of a year when the phenomenally popular musical The Producers ran away with a record 12 Tony Awards, this year's competition for the coveted musical honors was expected to be a horse race. Would the voters in the 56th annual competition go for the grungy satire with the off-putting name Urinetown the Musical or the earnest, eager-to-please Thoroughly Modern Millie? And the winner was, not surprisingly, Millie, a Jazz Age tale of an ambitious flapper that garnered six awards last night, including best musical, leading actress in a musical (Sutton Foster)

Angels in America, an epic six-hour drama about AIDS in Ronald Reagan's America, picked up 11 Emmy awards last night as HBO asserted its dominance as the home for daring and quality television. The haul ties Eleanor and Franklin, a 1976 TV movie, for the most Emmys won by a show in a single season - cementing Angels' place as a historic television event and a groundbreaking movie. The miniseries based on Tony Kush- ner's award-winning play swept the acting awards for a miniseries or movie - with awards going to heavyweights Al Pacino and Meryl Streep - as well as winning Emmys for writing and directing.

Taking a page from Pennies From Heaven, the family and neighbors of Romance & Cigarettes' Nick Murder (James Gandolfini) act out by singing along to kitschy hits, such as Engelbert Humperdinck's "A Man Without Love." It's karaoke with a vengeance as Murder, a Queens, N.Y., construction worker, takes refuge from a dead marriage in the arms of an underwear shop clerk (Kate Winslet, ferreting humanity out of a crass other-woman stereotype). His wife (Susan Sarandon) and his daughters (Mary-Louise Parker, Mandy Moore, Aida Turturro)

T-shirts bearing the song titles "I'm Still Here" or "Broadway Baby" were on sale in front of the theater; Sweeney Todd-inspired meat pies were on the menu at the adjoining restaurant; and thousands of devotees stood patiently in lines that snaked around New York's Symphony Space on Saturday. The occasion was Wall to Wall Stephen Sondheim, a free 12-hour marathon celebrating composer Stephen Sondheim's 75th birthday. From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., 382 performers (ranging from children to such Broadway veterans as Barbara Cook, George Hearn, Angela Lansbury and Elaine Stritch)
