DiVaR Alert for Angela Lansbury!

On November 14, 2007, I spent an entire evening with Angela Lansbury.  At the Paley Center for Media in New York City, that is.   My friend Denise and I waited in line early and sat very near the front for the lovely evening of interview and television clips from Angela's career.   Marian Seldes and Brian Murray were seated on the row in front of us.  The whole evening was fabulous and fun.  Read my entire account here.

Now that evening is being condensed into a tight 30 minutes for PBS.  On Friday, October 8th, at 7:00 pm PBS local station WLIW 21 will present "At The Paley Center."    Check your local listings for broadcast to other cities.

Want to see more of the interview?  You can always go to the Paley Center (in New York, 50th Street between 6th & 5th Ave).  Visitors can watch an hour and members can watch up to 3 hours of programs at a time - almost everything that has been on television is archived and available for viewing on semi-private viewing screens.  There are also several viewing rooms  - check the schedule to see what's on these screens.  I highly recommend their upcoming "Musicals on Television" series

Thanks for the heads-up on this, Sarah. I remember your rave.

Did you hear the funny reference to Angela Lansbury on last night's "Modern Family"?

Thanks SOB. No, I didn't see it because I worked late last night. I didn't watch Modern Family last season but it's not my dvr now. I'll get around to it eventually I suppose.
