"It's all illusion"

This was a very nice surprise in my Sunday Parade magazine: an interview with Angela Lansbury! Here's what she has to say about her role in the Broadway revival of Blithe Spirit, with Christine Ebersole and Rupert Everett, which begins previews Feb. 26 at the Shubert Theatre.

"I had no intention of coming back to work, only of coming back to New York to enjoy the city as a part-time resident," said Angela. "But my agent called, saying, 'They're interested in having you play the psychic, Madame Arcati.' I'm a bit long in the tooth [83], but that's the great thing about the theater - it's all illusion."

Here's a link to the interview, by James Brady, and a slideshow of Ms. Lansbury through the years. And you can take a 50-question movie musicals quiz here.
