Angela Wins First Olivier Award

Proving that 89 years old is never too late for anything, Dame Angela Lansbury won her first-ever Olivier Award for her return to the London stage in “Blithe Spirit,” after an absence of nearly 40 years. Hosted by actor and comedian Lenny Henry, the ceremony took place at London’s Royal Opera House on Sunday night. Accepting her award, Dame Angela said: “All these years of waiting. I am so infinitely grateful to have this baby in my hands. Here I am creeping up to 90 and feeling like a million dollars because I’m in London in this magnificent hall with all you – my roots, where I began.”
