Stritch: Not Thrilled About New Life

Elaine Stritch moved back to her native (suburban) Detroit a few weeks ago, and a reporter caught up to her. What does she think of her new life there? Well, let’s just say that she’s not quite ready to drink to that. There’s not a lot to do out there. To wit: “I don’t have a damned thing to do except take walks, and I’ve done that. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.” And what does Stritchie dislike about Michigan and miss most about Gotham? “There’s not as many people in on the joke like they are in New York. You know what I’m talking about? That’s what I love about New York — the humor of New York is brilliant. Brilliant.”
