Angela Lansbury made her Broadway debut in 1957's Hotel Paradiso. She worked consistently on Broadway through the 1960s and 1970s, taking on such roles as Cora Hoover Hooper in Anyone Can Whistle, Rose in Gypsy, Mame Dennis in Mame, Anna in The King and I and Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd.

Following a nearly 25-year hiatus, she returned to the Great White Way in the 2007 production of Terrence McNally's Deuce. Lansbury was last on Broadway as Mrs. Sue-Ellen Gamadge in Gore Vidal's election-time comedy The Best Man.
