“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.”

The Broadway favorite was last on The Great White Way in the critically acclaimed revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music.
