'King and T now belongs to star Lansbury
By WILLIAM GLOVER
NEW YORK (AP) — The King and /now
belongs, radiantly though briefly, to that
Broadway musical queen, Angela Lansbury.
With lilting charm and folksy ease, Lansbury is now appearing at the Uris Theater in
the Rodgers-Hammerstein opus.
Her appearance is the top trump in a
shrewdly diplomatic ploy by the management
to keep public interest high during a three-
ner and Constance Towers.
Brynner's regular understudy, Michael
Kermoyan, takes over, and stellar attention
is shifted to the plot's heroine.
Lansbury, simply by her presence, alters
some of the realtionships between the imperious ruter of Sam and the English schoolm-
arm he had hired to teach his three-score offspring.
Lansbury's most endearing latent is conta-
geous warmth, and that quality shines out
triumphantly in all her half dozen songs, even
in the gentle sarcasm of Shall I Tell You
What I Think Ot You?
For his part, Kermoyan avoids carbon
replica of Brynner, displays a lusty, sonorous
baritone in Puzzlement and after some
apparent early nervousness became a convincing oriental despot. The couple's big
number, Shall We Dance? could improve with
a bit more practice and finer timing.
Brynner and Towers return May 1, to celebrate the show's first anniversary.
