10.  Made her Broadway debut in Three Days of Rain in 2006.    They play closed after 70 performances.  She did not get good reviews.  From the NY Times:  

"Your heart goes out to her when she makes her entrance in the first act and freezes with the unyielding stiffness of an industrial lamppost, as if to move too much might invite falling.

Sometimes she plants one hand on a hip, then varies the pose by doing the same on the other side. Her voice is strangled, abrupt and often hard to hear. She has the tenseness of a woman who might break into pieces at any second...  Her parts in "Three Days of Rain" are essentially character parts, and Ms. Roberts is not a character actress."

3) George Martin was Peter Sellers' producer at EMI. He also produced other comedy records.

It was this association with Sellers that led the company to suggest to Brian Epstein that he produce The Beatles.

For some reason he got associated with esoteric eccentricity through working with Sellers, Dudley Moore and others.

So anyway, you can say, indirectly, that Peter Sellers helped to chart the future of rock and roll.
