    Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89....

    Ms. Stritch’s career began in the 1940s and spanned almost 70 years. She made her fair share of appearances in movies, including Woody Allen’s “September” (1987) and “Small Time Crooks” (2000), and on television; well into her 80s, she had a recurring role on the NBC comedy “30 Rock” as the domineering mother of the television executive played by Alec Baldwin.But the stage was her true professional home. Whether in musicals, nonmusical dramas or solo cabaret shows, she drew audiences to her with her whiskey voice, her seen-it-all manner and the blunt charisma of a star.



    they don't make 'em like her anymore. :(

    I know, WGAS WGAF. I think she was an awesome broad.

    I was just reading about her in the NY Post this morning. Lived on the big stage, lived an exciting life, was a big drinker and lived to about 90. Good for her. R.I.P

    Did she ever do any nudity, preferably in the last 5 years?

    She was my brush with a real Broadway star! Years ago I saw her in Soho and asked if she would mind if I took her photo. Elaine was very approachable and a friend who was with her even offered to take the photo with me in it! It was very cool.
