The First Lady of Broadway and simply the coolest gal of them all Ms. Angela Lansbury celebrates her Birthday today.

After 50 films, over 20 plays, hit TV show, countless television appearances, 3 Oscar nominations, 5 Tony Awards, 6 Golden Globes and 18 Emmy Awards nominations Ms. Lansbury could have retired years ago, but fortunately for all of us she continues to act for almost 70 years and hopefully will keep doing so for many years to come.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Lansbury! Thank you so very much for all your timeless contributions to the world of art!

Ms. Lansbury will be next seen in Australian tour of Driving Miss Daisy alongside James Earl Jones from February to June, 2013.

The characters she played (and still plays) are best summarized by Sondheim:

She was grand, bland, brave or brisk or brittle,
Anything required,
Both concerned and strictly non-committal --
And a little tired.



If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I'm surprised we don't get the day off work- shouldn't they close the banks?

Happy birthday to an inspiration! So happy to be able to enjoy her work.
