Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"Worst Pies in London" (Angela Lansbury, Sweeney Todd)
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Sondheim & Wheeler's dark masterpiece first opened at Broadway's Uris Theatre (now Gershwin) on this date in 1979, winning Angela Lansbury her fourth Tony Award. This is top-shelf Lansbury and it just doesn't get better than 1:43-2:13 as every movement matches the music.
