December 29, 1980 - Jan 25, 1981 | The Public Theater
I just remember Elizabeth as a person with an inexhaustible creative energy — her half-closed eyes during any musical rehearsal, head turned up and half away from us, like she was waiting for instructions from on high, or a different galaxy. And then jumping to her feet from the floor (she always preferred to sit on the floor), bursting with visions and revisions, and let’s just do it again, AGAIN!! She was like a 7-year-old in a grown-up’s body, with teenage hair, hair that was her shield and tent and quiet room. She was the weirdest combination of exuberant and shy, shy, shy. Certain of her musical ideas, no doubt, no equivocating — but terrible anxiety about just standing in the room with people. The voice that emerged — unique, female, eternally young and tied to childhood — has not been duplicated in the theater. (New York Times, July 03, 2016)
