Here’s to a cozy weekend, friends! Do you want to spend it wrapped in a new robe? Because I rounded up a bunch of them for you! We also had a fruitful chat about what we’re all reading!

Angela Lansbury died this week at the grand age of 96, and it turns out we here at GFY have a wealth of Angela Lansbury content — primarily this fun retrospective I wrote for her 95th birthday, and our coverage of her 1949 wedding (which has video!). There’s also a history of her at the Tonys, which includes a video of her performing with Bea Arthur, and a flashback to the premiere of La Cage Aux Folles, which is not as noteworthy for her participation necessarily but is a wild ride overall.
