    in music and reading I studied piano my teacher discouraged me from playing or even listening to anything other than classical She got very upset when she caught me picking out Georgy Girl on the keys V She was high culture oriented L Right Playing the piano became a form of escape for me In the back of my mind I always knew that I wanted to be an actor or performer but I was afraid to say it Everyone in my town took piano lessons that was accepted but to actua ly make a career out of that was another thing Everyone wanted me to get my teacher s credentials because they didn t think I could make it playing piano I proved em wrong laughs I ended up playing rehearsals for the American Ballet Theater for years I also played saxophone in the high school band and studied pipe organ as well My favorite organist is ETHEL SMITH She plays the role of a music teacher in Bathing Beauty 1944 with Red Skelton and Esther Williams It s set at an all girls school and there s a scene where the girls come in and say Oh don t play any Bach today why don t you play Tico Tico So she starts playing it she has a big 40s pompadour and she just goes to town on the organ That was her big recording hit it sold over a million copies I think she s in Saludos Amigos 1942 and The Three Caballeros where she s live but everything else is animated and she s flying around the sky playing the organ It s really wonderful I also saw her in a hillbilly movie when I was a kid never forgot her CHARLES PIERCE used to take her on the road as his opening act V How did you take the step of moving to New York L Sheer nerve and saving up money When you re 23 you think I m just going to do this I had played piano for a ballet class in Mississippi so I moved to New York with a letter of recommendation and immediately got a job playing for the American Ballet I was green as they come even at 23 nowadays young people know so much more But for a 23 year old from Mississippi in 1978 who was insecure and shy with all the baggage that comes from growing up in the South moving to New York seemed like a major achievement In Mississippi I had been an outsider I was taunted for being a musician and for being effeminate The irony is now I use that effeminacy to make my living and my name It s definitely been a form of revenge to say to those people who made fun of me Well look at me I m on TV with Sandra Bernhard I m in People magazine with Madonna and I hang out with Karl Lagerfeld I
