The return of the ultimate Patron Saint





From the BBC:
Angela Lansbury is to appear on the London stage for the first time in almost 40 years in a new production of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit.

She will reprise the role of Madame Arcati, which she first played on Broadway in 2009, winning a Tony Award.

The 88-year-old has not appeared in the West End since 1974, when she played the lead role in the Sondheim's Gypsy.

Her return to the West End is limited to 15 weeks, after which she must return to the US for a wedding.
I think we may well be camping out (oo-er) for tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical spectacular!

I am Angela Lansbury...
