"Salty, sophisticated, smart and altogether hilarious, Stritch was unquestionably one of a kind."


The death of Elaine Stritch one of Noël Coward's most vibrant and acerbic leading ladies is a great loss. 'Stritchie' is perhaps best remembered as Mimi Paragon in 'Sail Away' Noël's last musical that saw the two female leads merged into one to accommodate her huge talent. Here she is with Noël during the run of the musical at a recording session of the show.
