operaqueen: Angela Lansbury’s replacement Ann…


Angela Lansbury’s replacement Ann Miller, performing Open A New Window in the original Broadway production of Mame. 1969.

I love Ann Miller, After Angela she’s the best Mame.

“Before you find you’re a dull fellow,
Punching the same clock,
Walking the same tight rope
As everyone on the block.
The fellow you ought to be is three dimensional,
Soaking up life down to your toes,
Whenever they say you’re slightly unconventional,
Just put your thumb up to your nose.
And show ‘em how to dance to a new rhythm,
Whistle a new song,
Toast with a new vintage,
The fizz doesn’t fizz too long.“
