Angela Lansbury fans have good reason to cheer.

The multiple Tony Award winner recently told CBS' Katie Couric that retirement is not in her near future. In fact, the 84-year-old actress, currently starring on Broadway opposite Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones in the revival of A Little Night Music, said that she would especially like the chance for another film role.

"I'd like to do one great movie before I pass along the way," Lansbury told Couric. "I don't know what it'll be. But I think there's one out there somewhere."

The former "Murder She Wrote" star also spoke about the demands of eight shows a week on Broadway: "I mean, there are times when you walk into that dressing room and you think, ‘I can't do this. I cannot do this.’ And it's a curious thing: When you sit down in front of that mirror and you pick up that first piece of makeup and you start to apply it – you see how I immediately go under the eyes? First thing! – and suddenly, you transform yourself into that person who is capable of going on stage and delivering that performance. And you do it, and yes, you can. Yes, I can! Yes, I can!"

Directed by Trevor Nunn, Night Music plays the Walter Kerr Theatre. Visit
