Elaine Stritch, the Broadway icon, has died.

She was 89.

An inimitable presence on stage and screen, Stritch was perhaps best-known in recent years for her recurring “30 Rock” guest role as the mother of Alec Baldwin’s character.

She was a five-time Tony Award nominee, a three-time Emmy Award winner, and starred in movies including Woody Allen’s September and Small Time Crooks.

Her legendary performances in Broadway shows like “Sail Away” and “Company” led to her induction in the American Theater Hall of Fame.

A documentary about the actress called Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me was recently released (see below).
