First time For Angela

Lansbury
“I never played Westport Country Playhouse. I wasn’t a big enough star! If I don’t perform one small thing on this stage tonight, I’ll feel like I’ve missed the opportunity of a lifetime.” So Angela Lansbury brought down the house with “Not While I’m Around” by Stephen Sondheim from “Sweeney Todd.”

Angela received her special tribute from Bernadette Peters at Monday’s Sept. 15 all-star Westport annual gala, hosted by Julia Roberts. The theater grossed $1,407,610 for the year-round Playhouse. Ralph Lauren presented an award to Suzanne and Bob Wright for their Playhouse contributions.
