The Groovy List is looking forward to Tea with the Dames

The Groovy List is a weekly roundup of groovy gay pop culture:

1) Groovy Gal: Carole Shelley
The English actress, who died Friday at age 79, won the 1979 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for The Elephant Man. She also received Tony Award nominations for Absurd Person Singular (1974), Stepping Out (1987) and Billy Elliot: The Musical (2008). Other Broadway credits include The Odd Couple (1965), Loot (1968), Hay Fever (1970). The Norman Conquests (1975), Noises Off (1985), Show Boat (1995), The Last Night of Ballyhoo (1997), Cabaret (1999), Wicked (2003) and A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder (2014).

Shelley reprised her Odd Couple role as Gwendolyn Pigeon in the 1968 film version and in four 1970 episodes of the ABC sitcom. Other feature film credits include The Boston Strangler (1968), Some Kind of a Nut (1969), The Aristocats (1970), Robin Hood (1973), The Whoopee Boys (1986) and Bewitched (2005) as Aunt Clara.

Below you can watch her in The Odd Couple film and Billy Elliot: The Musical.

2) Groovy Movie Trailer: Tea with the Dames
Dames Eileen Atkins, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Maggie Smith are longtime friends, and they invite us to join them for a weekend in the country as they catch up with one another and discuss their careers. The documentary will be released on September 21.

3) Groovy Guy: Randy Rainbow
He performs his latest song parody, "If You Ever Got Impeached".

"Nothing Like a Dame" (as it was known when it was on telly here in the UK) was fabulous! You'll enjoy it! Jx

Wow Tea with the Dames looks amazingly entertaining!! They all look great and a terrific advertisement for aging naturally and gracefully. Nice to see Joan Plowright looking so well, I know she retired because she's more or less lost her sight but I miss her very much. Thanks for the heads up!
