Aww, sad that there's no Angela Lansbury Diana Rigg joins Pygmalion

Though I am told that she is going to be appearing in one of Trevor Nunn's Haymarket engagements in the next year...

I'll definitely see Pygmalion.

If Angela Lansbury appears in Follies (playing Hattie, no doubt) I'll be the first in line to buy tickets.

I love that seeing certain people in follies is the one thing that we can all agree on.

Also, Carlotta anyone?

If Angela Lansbury appears in ANYTHING in London, I would fight to the death for tickets!

You know what, you're right, but as some wise board member said a few months ago,

'That really won't be necessary, just take money to the box office'

Talk about luxury casting.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

Hopefully Rigg's diction will be clearer than when we saw her in a Tennesse William's play (the one where the boy gets eaten!).
She was inaudible for most of the show.

I'd like to think that if her diction was poor, it was because she meant for it to be.

In my mind, she's the most well spoken woman in the world, and probably the ... british-est
