Julie Harris, one of Broadway's most celebrated performers, has died.

Harris won the Tony award for Best Actress five times from the 1950s to the 1970s.

Her theater career spanned nearly 60 years, capped by a Lifetime Achievement Tony in 2002.

In 2005, she received Kennedy Center honors from President George W. Bush, along with Robert Redford, Tina Turner, Suzanne Farrell and Tony Bennett.

A family friend says Harris died of congestive heart failure.

She was 87.
