    A bona fide Broadway icon, Michigan born Elaine Stritch has spent over six decades on the musical and dramatic stage.  Appearing in such acclaimed shows as Bus Stop, Sail Away, Pal Joey, Showboat and A Delicate Balance, her rendition of “The Ladies Who Lunch” from the 1970 Stephen Sondheim musical Company is legendary.  She returned to “old Broadway” in 2011 playing Madame Armfeldt to the A-adorable Bernadette Peters’ Desirée in a sold-out engagement of A Little Night Music.   With performances of her current cabaret show, Elaine Stritch Singin’ Sondheim…One Song At A Time before audiences in New York, Detroit and Los Angeles, there’s no retirement in the near future. . . “isn’t it bliss?”

    P. Murali Doraiswamy is professor of psychiatry and a member of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences.   His lab researches the interplay between genetics and lifestyle in influencing human cognitive and emotional health.
