Few actors have had as long and accomplished a career in showbiz as Dame Angela Lansbury. She might be best known to American audience for her role as Jessica Fletcher in “Murder, She Wrote,” which ran from 1984 to 1996.
She was nominated for an Oscar three times – for her supporting work in “The Manchurian Candidate,” “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “Gaslight.” She has nabbed six Golden Globes, five Tony Awards, in addition to being nominated multiple times for an Emmy.
This winter, Lansbury will reprise her role as Madame Arcati (for which she won her fifth Tony Award) in the Noel Coward play “Blithe Spirit.” Performances for the show start Tuesday, Dec. 9, and run through Jan. 18, 2015, at Center Theatre Group’s Ahmanson Theatre. The play is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Michael Blakemore (“Kiss Me, Kate,” “Copenhagen”).
