Elaine Stritch’s Life To Be Celebrated at Star-Studded Event

Elaine Stritch's Life To Be Celebrated at Star-Studded Event

Legendary actress, Elaine Stritch, is getting an all-star tribute. 

Patti LuPone, Hal Prince, Betty Buckley, Christine Ebersole, Michael Feinstein, Rob Bowman and more to be announced will hit the stage at the Al Hirschfeld Theater in New York on November 17 to celebrate the life and career of Stritch, who passed away in July at the age of 89.

The event, “EVERYBODY RISE! A CELEBRATION OF ELAINE STRITCH” is the creation of playwright, film and theater director George C. Wolf.

Stritch’s extensive career — which goes way back to 1944 with her first on stage debut — also included film and television credits in programs such as “30 Rock” and “Law & Order” in addition to movies like Woody Allen’s “September” and Chiemi Karasawa’s frank documentary, “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.” She is the recipient of three Emmys, a Tony and was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame in 1995. 

A limited number of tickets for the event will be made available to the public on the day of the event on a first-come-first-served basis.
