Doctorow, John Simon, Glenda Jackson, Bella Abzug, Marian Seldes, Malcolm Forbes, Eartha Kitt, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Judith Jamison, Marvin Hamlisch, Tony Bennett, Gloria Vanderbilt, Charles Aznavour, Alan Dershowitz, Maurice Sendak, Leo Rosten, Marcel Marceau and Barbara Cook, to name just some of them.
