The Dec 26/Jan 2 double issue of EW has a section where the famous people who died in 2003 are eulogized. Bernadette wrote the tribute for Al Hirschfeld. It's on newsstands now.

Entertainment Weekly
BYLINE: Bernadette Peters

BODY:
The first one must have been for George M!: little lips, little eyes, round face. There's one of me in Sunday in the Park With George hanging in the Shubert office. I also have the one he did for Annie Get Your Gun. I'd never dare ask him about how he drew me. You don't dare, even in your mind, mess with a Hirschfeld caricature. You're just grateful for it. You want to see, through his eyes, what something looks like.

You could tell he loved the theater, the way he drew it. He was supportive of the actors. He gave his little reviews with the Ninas [his daughter's name, hidden in the drawing]. You always wanted to see if you got a Nina. That was such a wonderful game each Sunday: Where are the Ninas and who got them? He'd hide them in people's hair, people's clothes. When he liked someone, he gave them lots of Ninas. It was a great theater tradition.

Al was an observer. He sat and watched. Maybe that's what kept him alive for so long--he was interested in everything. He was such a presence, with that long beard. You couldn't miss him. (Hirschfeld died of natural causes in New York City.)

that sounds kind of like what Bernadette said about him in the tribute to him at the tony's this year. i wonder if she wrote it for EW or if they quoted from what she said then.

I read that! I actually bought the magazine for the picture of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (that show makes me laugh) and my friend saw the tribute to Al Hirschfeld and I got excited

It does sound like what she said at the Tony's, but was it really that long?
