Legendary Broadway and screen actress Elaine Stritch has died at the age of 89.
Stritch, whose stage career began in the 1940s, is perhaps known for her association with Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim.
Stritch nabbed Tony nominations for William Inge's 1955 play Bus Stop, Sondheim's Company and Noel Coward's 1961 musical Sail Away before winning just a few years ago for her one-woman show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty. She was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame in 1995.
She also won an Emmy for her role as Alec Baldwin's pushy mother on the NBC show 30 Rock. Most recently, Stritch was the subject of a documentary, Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me. Directed by Chiemi Karasawa, Shoot Me follows Stritch as she works on a number of productions, including the cabaret show Singin' Sondheim… One Song At A Time.
Windy City Times published an interview with Stritch about the movie; the talk is at http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Elaine-Stritch-Still-dancing/46477.html.
Last year, Stritch left New York to move to Michigan.
