Showbiz Breaks News: Is Gaga going Broadway? Lady Gaga has just had a major shoutout from an acting legend. 85 year old Angela Lansbury has just revealed to Showbiz Tonight she wants Gaga to bring it to Broadway and play MAME, one of the stage’s most over the top eccentrics. Lansbury, who won a Tony for originating the role in 1966, tells us Gaga could pull it off, more or less. [cut to Angela mid sentence]Does this sound like an endoresment to you? It sure doesn't to me. That being said, if Lady Gaga, whose work many of friends admire, really wants to come to Broadway then good for her and I wish her luck. It's an established fact that I'd give anything to see a revival of MAME and perhaps its possible that it will need extraordinary star quality to make it happen, but dear producers, please sensible about this. I believe your extraordinary star is already right beneath your noses: Donna Murphy.
“…she could sure wear the clothes, that’s for sure. It would be another generational type MAME. I can’t imagine that, her singing ‘If He Walked Into My Life,’ but you know, anything’s possible.”
This clip of "If He Walked Into My Life" is from the 1983 revival of MAME, which Angela Lansbury starred in once again.
