take your vitamins, and quitcher bitchin'

One of my troupemates forwarded this, and I have to share it. Former Ziegfield Girl Doris Eaton Travis has announced her return to the Broadway stage. She'll be dancing at the New Amsterdam on 42nd Street as part of an AIDS fundraiser, which is sweet because that's where she got her start.

Back during World War 1.

Travis is 101 years old.

She says, "I will admit that sometimes I get a little tired. Once in a while I'll take a little nap in the afternoon, which I didn't use to do, but I think I'm privileged to do that."

Uh, yeah, I think so.
