The grand presentation of this song-filled terror includes director Thomas Kail, famous for his direction on Hamilton, alongside Hugh Wheeler's initial script and the triumphant return of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning score, containing songs like “A Little Priest” and “Green Finch and Linnet Bird.” Also participating are some of the theater world's most seasoned artists operating behind the curtains.
In a new conversation earlier this year, leading actor Annaleigh Ashford shared her profound respect for the initial Mrs. Lovett, theater legend Angela Lansbury.
"I forever dreamed of becoming Angela Lansbury as I grew older, because she embodied the penultimate role actress. She possessed the talent to discover comedy and life, as well as compassion within each and every persona she played… She performed in an era when the prevailing influence was the patriarchy, and she coped with grace and affection… Each time I met her — our paths crossed thrice — I cried tears in an manner that was uncomfortable enough for me to withdraw."
