Elaine Stritch dies at 89
It was confirmed earlier this afternoon that the Broadway legend, actor and cultural icon Elaine Stritch has passed away at the age of 89. Often times playing the hardened, ‘salt of the Earth’ characters, Elaine Stritch will be remembered for her fantastic works on stage and off. Brassy, quick-witted, talented and wonderful are often times words that described both Stritch and the characters she played.
Elaine was a New York living-legend, loved by many in multiple industries, including critics and fans alike. Stritch passed away on Thursday in her home in Birmingham, Michigan., this according to the New York Times. She was 89.
