Broadway to give dim lights honor to Elaine Stritch who died at 89
Washington: Broadway will dim its light for 1 minute on July 18 to honor Elaine Stritch, who died at the age of 89 recently.
The beloved star of stage and screen died in her home in Birmingham, Mich, reportedly.
Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, said in a statement that Stritch`s big personality was matched by her big talent and collaborating with some of Broadway`s greatest playwrights and composers throughout her lengthy career, her signature numbers and singular style created a memorable legacy.
The four-time Tony nominee will always be remembered as an important part of Broadway`s rich history, and she will be missed by her many fans, she further added.
The one-woman show Stritch made her home on the stage, from her Broadway debut in 1946 in Loco to her final bow as Madame Armfeldt in the 2010 revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler`s `A Little Night Music`.
