The Metropolitan Room will proudly salute the legendary Elaine Stritch with an evening of stories and songs on August 7th 2014 at 7:00pm. Hosted by the famed cabaret's owner, Bernard Furshpan, performers of all backgrounds will join forces to honor her memory.

Performers are still to be announced, but audiences can expect to hear some of Stritch's favorite songs, like "The Ladies Who Lunch", "Why Do The Wrong People Travel?" and many more. A portion of the evening's proceeds will benefit Elaine's favorite charity.

Elaine Stritch, the raspy-voiced actress whose forceful personality and salty language enlivened the New York stage for more than six decades, died July 17, 2014 at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89. In a lengthy theater career whose ups and downs included a Tony-winning one-woman show, collaborations with Stephen Sondheim and Edward Albee. She made few apologies in her career, describing herself as a "Catholic, diabetic, alcoholic, pain in the ass." Her long fight with the bottle formed a narrative corner for her 2002 one-woman Broadway show "Elaine Stritch at Liberty," which won a Tony. She was nominated four other times, for best actress.

Tickets for the evening begin at $22.50 and are available one line at http://metropolitanroom.com/event.cfm?id=164083&cart. The Metropolitan Room is located at 34 West 22nd Street in New York City.
