In a fresh interview earlier in the year, primary actor Annaleigh Ashford discussed her deep admiration for the original Mrs. Lovett, theater legend Angela Lansbury.
"I always dreamed of becoming Angela Lansbury as I developed older, because she embodied the penultimate character actress. She possessed the skill to discover humor and life, as well as compassion within every single persona she played… She acted during an era when the dominant influence was the patriarchy, and she navigated with elegance and affection… Every instance I met her — our paths crossed thrice — I shed tears in an awkward that was embarrassing enough for me to retreat."
