“Through years and years of playing to various audiences, what I’ve learned is – and I think quite a few actors will agree with me – we’re not always the best judge of that audience’s reactions or not. And we discover, to our amazement, at the end of the show, they bring the house down with applause, and we thought, ‘No way tonight,’ you know.”- Angela Lansbury
“I had the ability, but I didn’t have the name. They could have built me, which is what they did with Deborah Kerr, but I don’t think I was quite hot enough in the looks department, quite frankly. I was all talent and no looks.” – Angela Lansbury
“Blithe Spirit’ is played almost all over Britain somewhere at all times because it is such a unique and ridiculously funny show. But it’s also, in fact, under those layers of humor, a very serious show. It’s quite misogynistic.” – Angela Lansbury
