In a recent conversation earlier in the year, primary actor Annaleigh Ashford shared her profound respect for the initial Mrs. Lovett, Broadway legend Angela Lansbury.
"I forever dreamed of emulating Angela Lansbury as I grew older, since she personified the penultimate character actress. She possessed the skill to discover comedy and life, as well as compassion within every single persona she played… She acted in an era when the prevailing influence was the male-dominated society, and she navigated with grace and affection… On all occasions I encountered her — our paths crossed thrice — I shed tears in an awkward that was embarrassing enough for me to withdraw."
