STAGE TUBE: Angela Lansbury Honored at Bucks County Playhouse
Last night, October 28, Angela Lansbury was honored as the first inductee to the Bucks County Playhouse Hall of Fame, the theatre where she played her first role on the American stage. Check out highlights from the evening below!
Tony winners Tyne Daly and Christine Ebersole were joined by Tony nominee Hunter Foster, Justin Guarini, Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley in special vocal performances honoring Ms. Lansbury. Theatrical veterans and Tony winners Boyd Gainesand Alfred Uhry, both who worked with Ms. Lansbury on the 2013 Australian Tour of Driving Miss Daisy, joined as special guests. As previously announced, Harold Prince presented Angela Lansbury with her Bucks County Playhouse Alumni Hall of Fame honoree award. Mr. Prince directed Ms. Lansbury in the original production of Sweeney Todd, for which they both received Tony Awards.
"What better way to induct Angela Lansbury into our Hall of Fame than to surround her with her adoring fellow artists," said Producing Director Jed Bernstein. "Angela Lansbury appeared at The Playhouse in 1952's Affairs of State, years before she stepped foot onto the Broadway stage, making her the perfect first honoree."
