The Broadway community will the memory of Dame Angela Lansbury by dimming the lights of Broadway theatres in New York for one minute at exactly 7:45 pm in her honor on Saturday, October 15. Lansbury, a six-time Tony Award winner, passed away at age 96 on October 11.
Lansbury first performed on Broadway in 1957’s Hotel Paradiso and she eventually won Tony Awards for “Mame,” “Dear World,” “Gypsy,” “Sweeney Todd,” and “Blithe Spirit.” Additionally, she was the recipient of the 2022 Special Award for Lifetime Achievement. She also hosted or co-hosted The Tony Awards five times, more than any other individual.
Lansbury was also a three-time Oscar nominee, eventually earning an honorary Academy Award, and a 19-time Emmy Award nominee, including 12 nods for the CBS series “Murder She Wrote.”
