Much later, she appeared in Chobizenesse (1975), Wall Street (1987), The Idol (2002), How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003), 4 Days in France (2016) and Broadway: Beyond the Golden Age (2018), her last. She won a Tony in 1982 for her performance in the stage musical Nine. She died from cancer of the colon.
