The highlights here are Andrews' performances in her various Broadway and Hollywood roles, from "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot" to "The Sound of Music" and "Mary Poppins." While devoted fans will probably cherish it, the music loses some of its charm when separated from the context of the shows.

I disagree with Laurie Winer's review of "Victor/Victoria" (" 'Victor' Drags in Broadway Staging," Oct. 26). I thought it was great fun. And if you look as young as Julie Andrews and can sing and dance as well, you're not too old for the part, as Winer says. And what is this unisex nonsense? Julie Andrews is a very attractive, even alluring, female, as her string of hit movies over the years prove. More mention of Tony Roberts and his very funny portrayal of the aging homosexual should have been made.

In his March 6 profile "Hugh Grant Is Veddy Veddy Busy," Chris Willman states that "Four Weddings and a Funeral" offers the talented actor "his first . . . film that has any likelihood of breaking out beyond the art-house circuit." It's worth noting that Grant previously starred in a film that made its mark on a mainstream audience. In 1991, Grant joined Julie Andrews, Ann-Margret, Tony Roberts and Zeljko Ivanek in Robert Greenwald Productions' groundbreaking AIDS television movie "Our Sons."

The frustrated hordes who could not get tickets to "Putting It Together" are not alone. We exclusive few who managed to get into the limited run at Manhattan Theater Club are frustrated too. But--eat your hearts out--we're frustrated that the intimate Stephen Sondheim revue didn't go on maybe five or six more hours, that Julie Andrews and company didn't sing every favorite song from every brilliant Sondheim score, that we can't rush back and see the thing again tonight.

"Who can contend with an endless erection that falls on its face when it see its reflection," sings Julie Andrews, America's sunniest star, in "Putting It Together," a new musical revue about sex, love and death. The show, which opens April 1 at the Manhattan Theatre Club, is among the most anticipated of the New York season.
