Revival of the “Best Man” on Broadway By Stars in Their 80s

Share:

I heard on English podcast that the stars in their 80’s are doing very well at Broadway shows.  James Earl Jones and Angela Lansbury, both in their 80’s are starring in the revival “Best Man”.  There is an interesting article on them.

I saw Angela Lansbury many years ago when she starred in the show Sweeney Todd.    I had known her from the TV program “Murder she wrote”  and also knew that she is such a fine actress.  As it was few decades ago, I was amazed that she is still going strong AND she is in 80’s.

Another star now active at Broadway is Joel Grey. I saw him in the movie, Cabaret, with Liza Minelli.  He was magnificent in the movie (I believe he also had the same role in the show, Cabaret at Broadway.)  I believe I may have seen  him at the show recently(I believe it was “Anything Goes”, and he was magnificent.

As you hear about these professionals who are so good at what they do, you feel that physical age really does not matter.  I have quite a few friends I have known for a long time (and quite close) whose age I do not know.  You love what you do, and you are good at it. Isn’t that all that counts?

    “The Follies,” in Palm springs is performed by those in their 60′s, 70′s, & 80′s. These shows have been done for years and are well worth seeing.
