In a fresh conversation earlier in the year, primary actor Annaleigh Ashford shared her profound respect for the original Mrs. Lovett, Broadway icon Angela Lansbury.
"I always dreamed of becoming Angela Lansbury as I grew older, since she personified the ultimate character actress. She displayed the skill to find humor and life, as well as humanity within each and every character she portrayed… She performed during an era when the dominant influence was the male-dominated society, and she navigated with grace and affection… Every instance I met her — our paths crossed thrice — I shed tears in an manner that was embarrassing enough for me to withdraw."
