Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lisa Kirk (February 25, 1925 - November 11, 1990) was an American actress and singer noted for her comic talents and rich contralto (her voice was called a husky alto). Born as Elsie Kirk in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, she enrolled as a law student at the University of Pittsburgh but abandoned her studies when she was offered a spot in the chorus line at the Versailles nightclub in Manhattan. She made her Broadway debut in Allegro in 1947, and the following year gained critical acclaim for her performance as Lois Lane/Bianca in Kiss Me, Kate. In Mack and Mabel (1974), she played an older actress who becomes a star tap dancer, and was noted by Clive Barnes to be "particularly fine."show more
