Happy 3rd Annual Angie Day!

Two years ago today, I proclaimed today as Angie Day. There are all kinds of things to commemorate and celebrate on this Angie Day! On February 17th, the box set of the Ninth Season of Murder, She Wrote will be released. Recently, my Angela Lansbury as Mame earrings arrived from Broadway Cares. It turns out that it really is a Christmas ornament but it's too pretty to be put on a tree. And within days of the arrival of Mame tchochke, Divas!, the beautiful book celebrating the photography of Kenn Duncan arrived. Angie graces the cover and my coffee table! Best of all, rehearsals for Blithe Spirit began on Monday. On February 5th, the box office at the Shubert Theatre opens and we shall be buying tickets for this much anticipated revival that brings Angela Lansbury back to Broadway once again. The first preview is February 26th. So, Happy Angie Day to one and all!

Happy Angie Day, my friend! Tonight after the play we'll order hot wings from the Firehouse, and we can even call them "Angie Wings" if you want. I'll do that for you.

Yay! And we'll pour some Angie-tinis!

Well, maybe some Angie beers. Or an Angie Malbec.

Happy Angie day to you!
I came into work and put on my Music Choice TV and Angela was already singing a song from Mame! What a great way to start my day :)
I was going to walk over to the box office today. So glad I read this. I was unaware they don't open until Feb 5th. Ah, the anticipation is too much!

The Diva's book looked so good I had to buy it, and they offered a Patti album with it too... so I bought both.
Patti Lupone at Les Mouches.

I received the Diva's book yesterday, and what a fabulous book it is too!
The photos are amazing, so large and on really heavy duty boards in a book!
Each one is a treasure. And Angie on the cover is sublime. Thanks for
mentioning it, or I never would have
known. You are the Angie patron saint in more ways than one :)
