BEST COMEBACK: Angela Lansbury
Theatergoers had all but resigned themselves to the fact that Angela Lansbury had made her theatrical swan song in Terrence McNally’s execrable Deuce, but she surprised us all by scoring a triumph with the tailormade role of Madame Arcati in a diverting production of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. Watching her do a bizarre dance to summon the spirit world, it was clear we were seeing an actress in full command of the stage and of her formidable, razor-sharp talent.
