"I sang around the house like a blooming lark. I had a very high voice—I could have been coloratura. I just opened my mouth and sang, and that’s the way I’ve always performed. A song has to be incorporated into a character. It would be much too simple to stand up and sing. And I took some lessons from a woman down in the Village—where I lived in the early days—learning to project, which we don’t need to do anymore in the theater, unfortunately. Actually, I think we’re going to work without microphones in Blithe Spirit. At least I hope so."
