“I’m back at my home away from home on Grand Avenue.
And I’m at the height of my powers.
Let me heal you with laughter.”
– Dame Edna Everage

“Dame Edna may leave the stage, but she will never leave my heart. I love her. I honor her.
I cherish the high times she has made for me and millions of others.”
– John Lahr, The New Yorker
