In a recent interview earlier this year, primary actor Annaleigh Ashford talked about her profound respect for the original Mrs. Lovett, Broadway icon Angela Lansbury.
"I forever hoped of emulating Angela Lansbury as I grew older, because she embodied the penultimate character actress. She displayed the skill to discover comedy and life, as well as compassion within every single character she portrayed… She performed during an era when the dominant influence was the male-dominated society, and she coped with elegance and affection… On all occasions I met her — our paths crossed thrice — I cried tears in an manner that was uncomfortable enough for me to withdraw."
