IN GOOD SPIRITS
If you haven't seen the "not suitable for minors" YouTube video, "Angela Lansbury Relaxing," you are missing out on a real treat: The well-preserved octogenarian, best known for her crime-solving ways as Jessica Fletcher on Murder, She Wrote, shows us how she likes to unwind. She massages herself in a barely-there towel, then takes a nice, warm bubble bath. Come on, you've got to be just a little bit curious. Anyway, that video is reason enough to check out Blithe Spirit, the Noël Coward play currently in revival on Broadway, in which Lansbury stars as Madame Arcati, a cracked-up clairvoyant who brings back Charles Condomine's dead wife, Elvira. Two more reasons to see it: Rupert Everett and Christine Ebersole. Hot.
