ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The late Ruth Gordon gave Kaye Ballard the best stage advice she ever received.
“She said, ‘Kaye, you’re in a bomb, and there’s nothing you can do about it,’ ” Ballard said in a telephone interview from Rancho Mirage, Calif. ” ‘Just go to opening night and have fun.’ It took the pressure off.”
The Broadway and TV star is coming to the Albuquerque Little Theatre on Sunday, July 29, to screen her biopic “Kaye Ballard: The Show Goes On …” The actress will take post-film questions for a benefit to renovate the theater’s bathrooms.
The star of “Carnival,” “The Pirates of Penzance,” “Gypsy,” “Funny Girl,” “Nunsense” and Stephen Sondheim’s “Follies” mused about her 70-plus years in show business.
