As BroadwayWorld reported yesterday, Patricia Elliott, who won a Tony Award for her Broadway debut in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, has passed away. Her niece, Sally Fay, said Elliott died of cancer on Sunday, December 20 at her home in Manhattan. She was 77.

Elliott first took to the Great White Way as 'Countess Charlotte Malcolm' in the original production of Stephen Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC in 1973. She won a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award and a Theatre World Award for her performance. She was also nominated for a Tony in 1977 for THE SHADOW BOX and received critical acclaim for her role in TARTUFFE in 1978.

Among her other Broadway credits are A MONTH OF SUNDAYS, THE ELEPHANT MAN, 12 RUE DE L'AMOUR, HEDDA GABLER, A DOLL'S HOUSE, KING HENRY V, A CRY OF PLAYERS and KING LEAR.

After graduating from the University of Colorado in 1960, she went on to study at London's Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Elliott also worked at the Cleveland Play House, Minneapolis' Guthrie Theater, and Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. Among her regional theatre credits are HAY FEVER at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles and THE LITTLE FOXES at Walnut Street in Philadelphia.

Elliott also played 'Renee Divine Buchanan' on ABC's soap opera ONE LIFE TO LIVE for two decades and appeared on the CBS Radio Mystery Theater series from the mid-70s to the early '80s. She also appeared on the small screen in KOJAK, ST. ELSEWHERE and HILL STREET BLUES.
