PHOTO ARCHIVE: Celebrating Broadway and Screen Legend Angela Lansbury
16 Oct 2013
Angela Lansbury, most recently on Broadway in Michael Wilson's revival of Gore Vidal's The Best Man, celebrates her 88th birthday Oct. 16. Playbill.com offers a look back at her most memorable performances over the last 50+ years.
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.
