Rest in peace. Veteran actress Kitty Carlisle Hart died yesterday of heart failure in New York at the age of 96. Carlisle Hart began her career on Broadway, acted in films and opera, and was singing on stage as recently as last fall. Carlisle Hart was also an arts advocate, lobbying state and federal legislators for funding to support rural string quartets, theater groups and inner-city dance troupes.
We saw her a few years ago and thought, we should look that good when we are in our 90’s. Should we ever be in our 90’s.
