An early birthday present for Miss Lansbury?
Last month, Variety reported that Christine Ebersole will be spooking the upcoming revival of Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit as the ghostly Elvira. It was also reported that Rupert Everett and Angela Lansbury were on the wish list for casting. This morning, I awoke to the news that Rupert has indeed been cast for his Broadway debut, fulfilling at least half of the producers' wishes. Can we count on news that Angela will be join on as Madame Arcati? I can't think of a better birthday present for her: she turns 83 on October 16th. I know it would definitely be an early birthday present for me.
