At long last, Andrews to accept award for Victor/Victoria

A true legend is coming back to town. Oscar winner Julie Andrews is heading our way to finally receive an award she was supposed to get eight years ago!

Due to a number of circumstances -- including her much-publicized vocal problems -- Andrews had been unable to coordinate with the Sarah Siddons Society to receive her Siddons award for the actress' star turn in Victor/Victoria way back in 1995-96.

No word on whether her ailing husband, Blake Edwards, will join her, but Andrews will be in Chicago June 7 for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel gala, where she will pick up Chicago's oldest award for theatrical achievement.
