Broadway Legend Elaine Stritch Passes

Gentle Friends one of Broadways real troopers has passed.....

Elaine Stritch - February 2, 1925 - July 17, 2014

Her one woman, Emmy Award Winning show "Elaine Stritch - At Liberty" - 2002 - is so worth a look, stories and songs from her enormous 70 year career - all done wearing black stockings and a white silk shirt with only a chair for a prop, you'll be mesmerized for the entire 140 minutes.  
A light goes out on the great white way......missing you already.

They really just don't make them like her anymore. She was BRILLIANT and BRASH and I love her for it. She will be missed greatly. RIP Elaine.

I recently watched her Britcom "Two's Company" courtesy of Netflix. She was one of a kind.

Jeanne said...

Ohhhh...sorry to see this. She was a hoot...I first became aware of her in the show Two's Company where she played an American with an English butler. She was always fun to watch.

Wow an amazing character and a real performer. Thanks for getting me lost on YouTube watching Ms. Stritch (or Stritchie as Coward called her.)

A fond adieu to a classy dame who
knew how to make it all count.

A great loss, indeed. Time to hunt for my LP of "Company" to hear her sing "Ladies Who Lunch" in memorial to this class act.

What a fun, fabulous woman! She was a free spirit who stayed true to her "self". She'll be missed....
