"I'm going to go to London next month, practically, yes, to recreate a role I did on Broadway which was Madame Arcati in BLITHE SPIRIT by Noel Coward, and I'm going to be playing at the Gielgud Theater," Lansbury shared.
"Now, the Gielgud Theater is a very famous old theater, because it was originally called the Globe, and the Globe is where my mother made her very first professional appearance in London, was at the Globe Theater, and I wish I could remember the name of the... I should have written it down!" Lansbury related.
Yet, the recognizable star pointedly added, "My memory about names and places now is dreadful. But lines, I can remember."
Furthermore, Lansbury says of the special luster of performing Coward in the West End, "I've never done it there... they're great devotees of Noel Coward in England, of course, he's a favorite son, and so to play Coward in London is such fun."
Lansbury concludes, "And anyway, the role is such a crazy lady. I just love doing that."
And we love it when she does, as well - each and every time!
