Broadway to Honor Elaine Stritch with Starry Tribute

Broadway will turn out to honor the late Elaine Stritch with a starry performance next month that will include theater-industry royalty including Bernadette Peters, Patti LuPone and Hal Prince.

Christine Ebersole, Betty Buckley and Michael Feinstein also will appear in the show, “Everybody, Rise! A Celebration of Elaine Stritch,” a tribute put together by George C. Wolfe, the director (“Angels in America,” “Lucky Guy”) who helmed Stritch’s autobiographical solo show, “Elaine Stritch: At Liberty.”

A limited block of seats to “Everybody, Rise!” will be released to the public on the day of the event, with further details on availability still to be set.

Broadway legend Stritch, who was a favorite performer of everyone from Noel Coward to Stephen Sondheim, died July 17 at 89. Her landmark Main Stem performances — “Sail Away,” “Company,” “At Liberty” — came alongside a film and TV career that included a memorable recurring role on “30 Rock” and, the year before she died, Chiemi Karasawa’s feature documentary about her, “Elaine Stritch: Just Shoot Me.”

The tribute to Stritch is set for Nov. 17 at 4:00 pm at the Al Hirschfeld Theater, currently home to Tony winner “Kinky Boots.”
