Q Whatever happened to the pretty and talented singer and actress Leslie Uggams?
-Marlene Cordie, Ogdensburg, Wis.

She's been busy! In 2005, Uggams, 64, completed performing in On Golden Pond on Broadway, and she's been working on bringing a musical called Stormy Weather, based on singer Lena Horne, to the stage. Last year, she celebrated her 42nd year of marriage to Grahame Pratt, whom she met in Australia while promoting the TV show Sing Along With Mitch, on which she made her national television debut in 1961. "I think I've had three weeks off in my entire life," she says with a laugh. "I'm not complaining."
