    although best remembered for playing alec baldwin's mom on 30 rock, stritch's roots extend back to broadway. she almost always wore a neck tie and huge glasses. she was a very talented and very funny lady. rest in peace.

    First time I saw her live was in Company, around 1971. I've been fortunate to have performed in several productions of that marvelous Stephen Sondheim show, and I never saw an actress in any of those play the character of Joanne, whom Stritch introduced, as anyone but Elaine Stritch. She out-and-out owned the role, and that takes an awful lot of stage presence and talent.

    Here's to you, Elaine ... "Everybody rise!"
