Angela Lansbury is one of the most successful and beloved actors. She has starred in some of the most popular films and television shows, including “Murder, She Wrote,” “The Manchurian Candidate,” and “Bedknobs and Broomsticks.” For her work in these and other projects, she has received five Golden Globe Awards and an honorary Oscar. At the age of 91, Lansbury is being honored with a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the industry. The award recognizes her “extraordinary career” and “unforgettable contributions” to the theatre community.
Longest Acting Career
Lansbury has had one of the longest and most successful careers in the sector, beginning with her Broadway debut in 1957. She has appeared in several successful plays and musicals, including “Mame,” “Sweeney Todd,” and “Gypsy.” In addition to her work on stage, Lansbury has also promoted the theatre community through her work with organizations such as The Actors Fund. The Special Tony Award is a fitting tribute to Lansbury’s incredible career and her contributions to the theatre community. She is an inspiration to actors and audiences alike, and we are thrilled to honor her with this award.
This is the first time Lansbury has been nominated for a Tony Award. She was previously nominated for an Academy Award for her work in “The Manchurian Candidate.” Lansbury will receive the Special Tony Award at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards ceremony, held on June 10, 2018. There is a feeling that Lansbury is being honored now because of her upcoming retirement. Lansbury has said that she plans to retire after her current Broadway show, “Sunset Boulevard,” closes in September. This will mark the end of a 60-year career in show business.
Retiring from Acting
