Hollywood was mourning Broadway legend Elaine Stritch on Thursday.
The actress, who was nominated for four Tonys and won three Emmys, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89.

Her throaty singing voice and torrid Broadway performances made her a New York legend and several theater vets, including Laura Bernanti and Jersey Boys star Erich Bergen, were among the first to pay tribute to Stritch on Twitter.
In addition to her Broadway performances, Stritch played Alec Baldwin’s torturing, icy mother Colleen Donaghy on NBC’s 30 Rock.
See below who took to social media to pay tribute to Stritch.
RIP Elaine Stritch #EverybodyRise
