When they met in a London production of The King and I, Yul Brynner was the King of Siam and Kathy Lee a dancer in the show. Earlier this month, during the show's run in San Francisco, Lee, 25, a former ballet student at Britain's Royal Academy of Dancing, took on another role: as Brynner's fourth wife. Brynner, who admits to 62, predicted hopefully: "This marriage will last 150 years." Or about as long as the probable run of The King and I—in which he is about to make his 4,000th performance.
Those weren't searchlights beaming from New York's Virginia Theater last week—it was just Jimmy Carter and Natalia Makarova smiling. The former President, his wife, Rosalynn, and daughter Amy, now 15, caught a performance of the revival of the 1936 hit On Your Toes, and afterward went backstage to meet ballet's gift to Broadway. There, Carter's mind seemed to be on a revival of his own. In the hubbub, Makarova's co-star, Lara Teeter, called out to Carter, "I voted for you." "Do it next time too," laughed the ever-optimistic ex-President.
The fund raiser that Joan Kennedy co-chaired to aid the Boston Metropolitan Center for the Arts featured more notable X's than an algebra equation: The soon-to-be-ex-wife of Sen. Ted Kennedy invited Liz Taylor (ex to the seventh power), who brought along ex-husbands Nos. 5 and 6, Richard Burton. He and Taylor are currently rehearsing roles as ex-husband and ex-wife for a New York production of Noel Coward's Private Lives (which explains her hairdo). In real life, the Boston formula—ex+ex+ex—equaled $30,000 for the Metropolitan Center.
