John Lahr Sues Elaine Stritch, Alleging Nonpayment

“Actress Elaine Stritch, known for her caustic personality, gravelly voice and her Emmy-winning turn as Alec Baldwin’s mother in ’30 Rock’ on TV, failed to pay writer John Lahr for his work on her hit 2002 Broadway show, according to a lawsuit Lahr filed last week.” New Yorker magazine drama critic Lahr was billed as having “constructed” the show, “Elaine Stritch at Liberty.”
