Tony and Emmy Award winner Elaine Stritch, born February 2, 1925, made her final appearance on The Great White Way in the critically acclaimed revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music.

Her many theatre credits include Pal Joey, Sail Away, Company, Bus Stop, Show Boat, and a Tony-nominated turn in Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance—plus her Tony-winning solo show Elaine Stritch At Liberty, which made her a legend for an entirely new generation of theatregoers.
