How does one introduce an icon like Angela Lansbury? Do you recount her career chronologically, beginning with her breakthrough role in 1944’s Gaslight, which landed her an Academy Award nomination, and continue to the present day with her upcoming June release of Mr. Popper’s Penguins with Jim Carrey? Do you discuss her craft in three distinct categories: the big screen, the small screen, and the stage? If that's the case, you would certainly have to spend some time detailing her lifelong friendship with Stephen Sondheim, who first cast the British actress in Anyone Can Whistle, then secured her a Tony with his Sweeney Todd and ultimately helped her grab another nomination for the 2009 revival of A Little Night Music. Or you could simply introduce Angela Lansbury by talking about her beloved voice.
