The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed July 18 at 7:45 PM for one minute in memory of Tony and Emmy Award winner Elaine Stritch, who passed away July 17 at age 89.
“Elaine Stritch’s big personality was matched by her big talent. Collaborating with some of Broadway’s greatest playwrights and composers throughout her lengthy career, her signature numbers and singular style created a memorable legacy,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, in a statement. “Elaine Stritch will always be remembered as an important part of Broadway’s rich history, and she will be missed by her many fans.”
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
