Kicking up her show girl legs till the end!
Please remember in your prayers Doris Eaton Travis, who died today at the age of 106. She is believed to be the last of the Ziegfeld Girls. I saw her last month as she opened the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS annual Easter Bonnet contest where she was still kicking up her legs and giving a big welcome to the theatre full of people. Her love of show business was obvious, and her youthful spirit was a joy to see. Check out the feature about her on Playbill.com.
God bless her. She was a Broadway baby right up until the end!
