Read more about Elaine Stritch Biography

Elaine is the youngest child of three born to Mildred and her husband George Joseph Stritch, who worked as an executive at B.F Goodrich. Elaine was of part-Irish and Welsh ancestry. She studied acting at the Dramatic Workshop of The New School in New York City, under Erwin Piscator, along with other students including Marlon Brando, and also Bea Arthur.

Elaine’s career started in 1944, but her Broadway debut came two years later, when she appeared in “Loco”, directed by Jed Harris. Soon she gained a role in “Made in Heaven”, and then appeared in “Angel in the Wings” (1947), in which she sang “Civilization”, and performed comedy sketches.

Little by little, Elaine’s name started becoming more sought on Broadway, and she later starred in the production “Bus Stop”, directed by William Inge, and also was the lead in the musical “Goldilocks”. In 1962 she was selected as the star of the musical “Sail Away”, although in the beginning she was given a minor role, but was then promoted to the lead. This celebrated her as a singer, aside from her already known acting talents, so her net worth was rising from two soutces.

She then featured as Ruth Sherwood in the musical “Wonderful Town” (1966), followed by an appearance in the “Private Lives”. In the early ‘70s, Elaine moved to London, where her reputation followed her, enabling her to immediately make an impact on London’s West End theatre scene. Her first appearance was in “Company”, and then in “Small Craft Warnings” (1973), and “The Gingerbread Lady” (1974), after which she took a break from theater until the early ‘80s.

Elaine moved back to the USA in 1982 after the death of her husband John Bay, and featured in such productions as “Suite in Two Keys” (1982), and “Follies In Concert” (1985). Although she returned to theatre, her career was nowhere near the status she had in the ‘70s but was steadily improving. In 1990 she was a replacement in “Love Letters”, for Kate Nelligan, and then in 1993 appeared in “Show Boat”, while three years later she starred in “A Delicate Balance”, for which she received a Tony Award- nomination in the category Best Actress in a Play. In 2002 she created a one-woman show – “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” – which won her a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, then she had several more appearances, including in “The Full Monty” (2009), and “A Little Night Music” (2010).

Although renowned for her theatre work, Elaine also had success on-screen; starting in the late ‘40s with her role in the TV series “The Growing Paynes” as Laraine Payne, and in total she appeared in more than 70 film and TV productions until the end of her career in 2014. In 1957 she portrayed Helen Ferguson in the war drama “A Farewell to Arms”, starring Rock Hudson, Jennifer Jones and Vittorio De Sica, while in 1958 she was Liz Baker in the romantic comedy “The Perfect Furlough”, with Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh and Keenan Wynn. From 1960 until 1961 she portrayed Ruth Sherwood in the TV series “My Sister Eileen”, and then the role of Dorothy McNab in the TV series “Two’s Company” (1975-1979), followed by appearing as Helen Wiener in the drama “Providence”, her net worth still rising steadily.

The next decade wasn’t quite so good for Elaine’s on-screen career, but she bounced back in 1992 with the role of Lannie Stiglitz in the TV crime-drama series “Law & Order”, which won her a Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. She started the new millennium with a role in the comedy crime film “Screwed”, next to Norm MacDonald and Dave Chappelle, and then played Dolly in the romantic drama “Autumn in New York”, starring Richard Gere and Winona Ryder. She made a minor appearance in the romantic comedy “Romance & Cigarettes” (2005), and the same year also featured in the romantic comedy “Monster-in-Law”, with Jennifer Lopez, Michael Vartan and Jane Fonda in the lead roles. Two years later she was selected for the role of Colleen Doaghy in the TV comedy series “30 Rock”, and appeared in several episodes, for which she won the Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Before her death, Elaine also appeared in the film “River of Fundament” (2014), and in the TV series “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”, the same year.

Regarding her personal life, Elaine was married to actor John Bay from 1973 until his death 1982. She died in her sleep at her home in Birmingham, Maryland USA on the 17th July 2014 .She was a diabetic and also suffered from stomach cancer, however, neither of health problems were stated as cause of her death. Elaine also had problems with alcohol, but managed to overcome that small hindrance, as her career amply demonstrates.

  • On Haila Stoddard: She was a rare piece of work in show business, I’ll tell you that. She was as fair as fair can be, and she had the taste and class to hire Noël Coward, and I hasten to add, me.
  • Honestly, this is a big thing to say, but I don’t think I’ve ever been bored. If I even get an inkling of it, I split. I love that lyric in “Thanks for the Memory”: You might’ve been a headache/But you never were a bore. I think being boring is just the worst sin of all time.
  • I was twelve, and my dad and sisters were downstairs in the living room having cocktails. My dad made what must have been a strong whiskey sour, and he gave me half. And a star was born!
  • [on Judy Garland] I honestly believe that she was the most talented female performer of the twentieth century.
  • [on friend and actress Vivien Leigh] Everything about that girl was sad. Except her talent. Nothing sad about that.


  • Broadway legend Elaine Stritch was considered for the original role of Dorothy in the television prime-time pilot series “The Golden Girls.” According to Stritch, many of the NBC executives in her audition liked her but the show’s creator Susan Harris didn’t and felt Stritch was too vulgar for the role. In her one-woman show, “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” (2002), Stritch recounted that she “blew” the audition by trying to break the ice by asking if she could improvise with the dialogue a little, and then, as a joke, changing the line “Ying, don’t forget the hors d’oeuvres” into “Ying, don’t forget the fucking hors d’oeuvres”.
  • She died only twelve days after her September (1987) co-star Rosemary Murphy.
  • Broadway legend Elaine Stritch was Broadway’s toughest broad. She had a career that ranged from Noël Coward’s last musical to Tina Fey’s first sitcom. When Coward saw Stritch’s 1962 Tony award-nominated performance in his “Sail Away,” the British playwright noted in his diary that she sang “so movingly that I almost cried.” Almost five decades later, in 2007, Stritch earned an EMMY for her guest turn as Alec Baldwin’s cantankerous mother on “30 Rock.” Says “30 Rock” creator Fey: “Elaine was a tough old bird, but I suspect she may have been a ‘tough old bird’ since birth.” Stitch’s Roman Catholic parents allowed her to move to New York City from Michigan in 1944 to study acting at The New School (Marlon Brando was a classmate), but only if she lived in a convent. She landed her first Broadway role in 1946 and continued performing in New York City until her retirement in 2013. Stretch struggled with alcoholism — in her prime, she was said to be capable of drinking friend Judy Garland under the table — and stopped drinking in her 60s upon learning she had diabetes, which in tart fashion she called “a pain in the ass, quite frankly.” At 48, Stritch married actor and Bay’s English Muffin heir John Bay (he died in 1982). Broadway was always Stritch’s home turf, but television bit parts gave her career a lucrative second wind, and she appeared on everything from “Law and Order” to “Head of the Class.” But she did only one other TV sitcom with “Rock” in the title: “Third Rock From The Sun,” in which she played Jane Curtin’s mother. “She was of the theater and she brought the theater with her,” said “3rd Rock” star John Lithgow. “She was idiosyncratic and kind of autocratic, but she was entitled to that and she knew it. I Loved her”.
  • Edward Albee’s dramatic original Broadway play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” opened on October 13, 1962, starring Uta Hagen as Martha, Arthur Hill as George, Melinda Dillon as Honey, George Gizzard as Nick, In the play’s July, 1963 through the 1964 closing performance schedule, Elaine Stritch performed the part of Martha, only in matinée performances. Noël Coward went to see Stritch play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” – “She was absolutely magnificent. A truly great performance. If only she could play it in London. She is really a fine actress.”.
  • Noël Coward first saw Elaine Stritch featured in the much vaunted 1958 musical “Goldilocks” written and directed by the New York newspaper critic Walter Kerr and his bubbly giggling wife! Coward’s opinion of the musical: “How does an eminent New York critic of his calibre have the bloody impertinence to dish out such inept, amateurish, nonsense! Elaine Stritch saved that show!” Remembering Stritch’s performance, Noël Coward cast Elaine as “Mimi” in his 1961 Broadway musical “Sail Away” – “an excellent comedienne, wildly enthusiastic and very funny. An ardent Catholic, has been in analysis for five years! A girl with a problem.” Elaine Stritch had a reputation of being tiresome, complicated and difficult; not bitchy and vile like some. Stretch, as Noël suspected began by being tiresome, over-full of suggestions and not knowing a word, but after a few rehearsal days she saw the light. “She was never, I hasten to add, beastly in any way, just fluffy and nervous inside, sure, authoritative and a real deliverer!” After Broadway, “Sail Away” opened 21 June 1962 at London’s Savoy Theatre, produced by the London theatrical impresario specializing in musicals, Harold Fielding, after a two-and-a-half-week try-out in Bristol. Noël had Stritch for five days of rehearsal. Noël’s assistant Coley was wonderful with Stritch and had given her a list of five words which must never again cross her lips – guilt, problem, scared, frightened, insecurity! Coward observed Elaine was completely confused about everything. “She is an ardent Catholic and never stops saying fuck and Jesus Christ. Like most Americans dreadfully noisy!”.
  • The documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me” directed by Chiemi Karasawa, is anything but depressing. The former Catholic school girl has packed a couple of life-times in her 89 years. “Shoot Me” features clips and photos from her past and lively conversations about her work with Sondheim and Noël Coward, her brief – and chaste – encounter as a teenager with a young John Kennedy (“He was the best-looking guy I ever saw in my life”) and marrying the love of her life, British actor John Bay, who died of brain cancer in 1982. The film also features interviews with such friends and colleagues as Alex Baldwin, who is an executive producer on the film, Hal Prince, Nathan Lane, Cherry Jones, Tina Fey, John Turturro and James Gandolfini. A chance encounter at a New York hair salon was the genesis for “Shoot Me.” Karasawa was getting her hair done when she saw Stritch in the salon. “My hair dresser said she has been a longtime client, you should be making a documentary about her,” Karasawa said. “I thought it was an interesting idea. I didn’t know that much about her.” But she had briefly worked with Stritch a few years before as a script supervisor on Turturro’s “Romance and Cigarettes,” in which Stritch played Gandolfini’s mother. “I just remember she was a tornado of a woman. She just blew in there, and every take was different.” It took about four months of conversations before Stritch agreed to participate in the documentary. And then there was no holding back. “We were astonished at the amount of access she gave us,” Karasawa said. “I liked Chiemi very much,” Stritch said. “We had a laugh or two or four or 75. I said all right, come, let’s do it. I thought she’s fun to be with.” Stretch noted that she “opened up more than I had planned” to the camera. “But I said to myself, ‘Why not tell the truth?'”.
  • Accounts of Elaine Stritch barging up to a Broadway box office and asking for “a single ticket, somewhere in the back of the orchestra – gratis, of course!” The only time she was denied was at “Mamma Mia!,” prompting her to add a middle expletive to the show’s title!.
  • “Ferocity built on vulnerability” is the way Cherry Jones summed up Stritch’s character, as good a description as any to describe a Broadway talent whose outrageousness was equaled only by her raw humanity.
  • Actress Holland Taylor relates about the way her “gallant” friend would coordinate her shopping bags (filled with diabetes medical paraphernalia and “deli”) with her outfits. Hermes went well with blue, Chanel always with black. Once she bought (or considered buying) anything, Stritch felt entitled to a lifetime supply of shopping bags. No ripped Henri Bendel bag for her when a fresh supply was just down the road.
  • Stritch performed as Alec Baldwin’s TV mother on the NBC sitcom “30 Rock”. When Elaine told him that he was made for Noël Coward comedy, Baldwin was thrilled because Stritch not only performed in Coward’s plays but knew him personally. “Of course you would have to lose 20 to 25 pounds first” she added with her usual stinging honesty – the very ingredient that made whatever she said on stage or off so unforgettable.
  • Hal Prince, who directed Elaine in “Company,” wondered how originals like Stritch originate. She was in his estimation, forever the naive convent girl and the sophisticated artist – qualities that made her an ideal interpreter of Broadway song. “And no one,” Prince wanted put down on the record, “has come close to matching” her version of “The Ladies Who Lunch,” the Sondheim number from “Company” that was her signature.
  • Stritch was unapologetically a mass of contradictions, as irascible as she was soft, as frugal as she was generous. One minute she was stuffing fruit in her Bendel’s bag from a table display at a fancy dinner party – “I need fruit,” – she shouted, as though strictly following doctor’s orders, the next she was ushering a homeless man into the back kitchen of a fancy Italian restaurant on Madison Avenue and telling the manager to send her the bill.
  • After seeing Nathan Lane in “The Addams Family” Elaine Stritch said with her usual take-no-prisoners candor, “Whatever they’re paying you, it’s not enough.” – Adding “If it’s not funny, it’s one long …(expletive)… night in the theatre.”.
  • Gossip columnist Liz Smith remarked her old pal Stritch left her some money with the request that she take Barbara Walters to dinner.
  • Bernadette Peters, who shared the stage with Stritch in “A Little Night Music” (Stritch’s last Broadway role) revealed some little known facts about the woman she called “my girlfriend.” Stritch’s favorite stripper name was Tequila Mockingbird, and when anyone died Elaine would say “they left the building.” Stretch, who left the building in July 2014 at 89, did so “on her own terms,” Peters confided. As her memory problem worsened, she apparently refused food and drink, stage-managing an ending more in keeping with how she wanted to go out.
  • In “Elaine Stritch: At Liberty”, Stritch tells of meeting Marlon Brando upon her arrival in New York City, where Elaine did “summer-stock” with Brando. After a performance, Brando took her to dinner, several clubs, ending up at a strip club where she was so bewildered that she broke into tears. He then suggested going to his walk-up in the village. Brando disappeared upon their arrival by going to his bedroom to change. Marlon soon reappeared wearing his pajamas. Complaining that it was so late, Elaine asked, “How I going to get home?”. Brando simply answered: “I don’t know!”. Elaine said that after that evening, Brando would never talk to or recognize her anywhere he saw her. Years later, Brando called her up to invite her to dinner. When she met him for dinner, Brando did not say a word to her. They went into the restaurant where Brando ordered two Manhattan cocktails. When they arrived, Brando crushed his own glass in his hand, badly injuring it. His only words to Stritch during the dinner were, “Elaine… I’m sorry.”.
  • Elaine Stritch appeared on the Broadway stage in productions of “Goldilocks”, “Sail-A-Way”, “Company” and the Lincoln Center Philharmonic concert version of “Company”. In “Sail-A-Way”, she had a minor role, but in the out-of-town previews, Joe Layton talked Noel Coward into dropping the lead singer, combining Elaine’s minor part with the leading role, turning it into Stritch’s vehicle.
  • The Broadway musical “The Grass Harp”, based upon the Truman Capote novella, composed by Claibe Richardson, book and lyrics by Kenward Elmslie, had the first staging in 1967. Elaine Stritch did “Baby Love” in Providence for a month’s run, and is considered by many the best to take the role.
  • Struggled with alcoholism throughout her adult life. Stritch quit drinking in 1987 following a severe diabetic attack and remained sober for 24 years. Into her mid 80s, Stritch began to allow herself a single drink a day which lead to further health problems including a series of strokes, as documented in Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me (2013). The actress sobered up again, and remained alcohol free for the rest of her life.
  • Cousin of the late character actor Ed Lauter.
  • Parents were George Joseph (1892-1987) and Mildred Stritch (1893-1987).
  • Performed her cabaret act at the Carlysle in New York City through the fall. [September 2006]
  • Inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame in 1995.
  • Spoofed by Forbidden Broadway (an ongoing collection of parodies of Broadway shows and performers) in the song “Stritch”, itself a humorous send-up of the song “Zip” from the musical “Pal Joey”.

  • Was a diabetic.
