The great Elaine Stritch has passed away at the age of 89.
The “New York Times” reports that the Broadway legend died in her Birmingham, Mich. home on Thursday.
The multiple Tony nominee was well-known for her work on the Great White Way, frequently working with Stephen Sondheim, including her iconic performance of “The Ladies Who Lunch” in “Company.”
To many, she was also known as Colleen, the foul-mouthed mother of Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) on NBC’s “30 Rock,” for which she scored her third Emmy in 2007.
In later years, the bawdy star would put on one-woman shows and was famous for wearing black tights and a long shirt, rather than wearing pants.
Just last year, she put out a documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,” which documented her decision – in part because of her failing health – to leave New York after decades and return to her hometown.
