Broadway Legend Elaine Stritch Dies
(CNN) - Legendary stage and screen actress Elaine Stritch has died at the age of 89.
The Tony and Emmy winner passed away at her Birmingham, Michigan home Thursday surrounded by family, according to a longtime friend.
Stritch moved to New York when she was 17 to study acting.
She made her Broadway debut in the comedy "Loco" in 1946.
Stritch is best known for her autobiographical one-woman show -- "Elaine Stritch at liberty."
She also won awards for guest starring t-v roles on "law & order" and for playing Alec Baldwin's mother on "30 rock."
Broadway will honor her memory Friday night.
Marquees will be dimmed at 7:45 p-m eastern for one minute.
