Stjerner Salute Legendary Actress (og 30 Rock Fixture) Elaine Stritch, død ved 89

Elaine Stritch, du bliver meget savnet! Den legendariske showbiz-stjerne døde i dag i hendes hjem i Birmingham, Michigan i en alder af 89 år. Stritch var en fixture i New York City indtil sidste år, da hun forlod sin berømte bolig på Carlyle Hotel i Manhattan for being closer to her family.

Nyheden om den sassy Broadway sanger og skuespillerinde gik øjeblikkeligt af sine kolleger, venner og fans i Hollywood. Many of them went to social media to express their condolences – from Mia Farrow, who played his daughter in Woody Allens september (1987) til hendes nyeste medstjern Alec Baldwin, som spillede sin langlidende søn på hit NBC-komedien 30 Rock.

Famous for its incredible territory, Stritch’s career began in the 1940s and lasted for almost 70 years. She appeared in a lot of film and tv shows, but the scene remained the place where she most shone. Uanset om jeg ser musicals, dramaer eller solo cabaret, tiltrak hun publikum til hende med sin berygtede stemme og karisma.

One of Stritch’s most memorable performances was in Stephen Sondheim musical Selskab (1970), hvor hun spillede en kynisk samfundskvinde og hilste sine jævnaldrende med hymnen “The Ladies Who Lunch.” Forestillingen achieved not only the Tony Prize, but it became her signature melody – she continued to sing it in her one-woman show Elaine Stritch i Liberty og på Det Hvide Hus for præsident Obama. And today she became a divorce for her transient.
