You ain’t seen nothing yet. It was recently announced that Angela Lansbury would return to Broadway, May 6, 2007, to costar with Marian Seldes in “Deuce.” But that’s only part of her return to N.Y.
She’s bought an apartment in the city while also keeping her home in Brentwood — where her family also resides. She’ll appear Nov.5 for The Acting Company at the Schoenfeld Theater in the works of Dorothy Parker, with Harriet Harris and Lisa Baines. And on Nov.13, she sings in “Gershwin Night” at Jazz at The Lincoln Center .The song she’s chosen is “A Foggy Day in London Town,” on which she auditioned for the show, “Anyone Can Whistle.”
As for television — where Angela starred for 12 years in “Murder She Wrote, she observes, “Television is a thing of the (my) past.” As for the stage, she says, “You’ve got to go back to your roots.”
