Broadway legend Elaine Stritch passed away today at the age of 89.

From her hilarious Emmy nominated role of Colleen Donaghy (Alec Baldwin’s mother) on 30 Rock to her five Tony Award nominations, Ms. Stritch will forever be remembered for the brash and biting roles she played. In 1993 she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for Law & Order, and in 2001 earned a Tony Award for her one woman show Elaine Stritch at Liberty.

This past February a documentary about the fascinating life and career of Elaine Stritch, Shoot Mewas released to rave reviews. It holds a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Stephen Holden of The New York Times said the following about the film:

“On a deeper level, Shoot Me is an unflinchingly honest examination of a woman who is aware that the end is approaching”

Here is Ms. Strich performing the shit out of the classic, Broadway Baby:
