Elaine Stritch

In today’s NYT, “Elaine Stritch, Broadway’s Enduring Dame, Dies at 89” by Bruce Weber and Robert Berkvist, beginning:

Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday [7/17] at her home in Birmingham, Mich.

Stritch has  been featured on this blog roughly once a year for a while:

8/28/11 “confirmed bachelor”:  on the expression, with special reference to Rock Hudson;  Stritch dumped her then-boyfriend Ben Gazzara for Hudson, hmmm

2/5/12 “Ben Gazzara”

3/12/13 “Two great dames”: on Barbara Cook and Elaine Stritch

And now this farewell posting.
