Remembering a Legend: The Essential Elaine Stritch on Disc
17 Jul 2014
Elaine Stritch, the Broadway icon who defined theatrical life on and off stage, died July 17 at the age of 89. Playbill.com looks back at the irreplaceable veteran with our retrospective of her numerous recordings.
As Stritch took her final bow, leaving Broadway, New York and the theatrical world forever changed, we are left with recollections of various performances — some of us with more than others — to remember her by, and a relatively small bunch of cast albums to keep on listening to. We remember the Broadway legend with a look back at this extensive column.
