“Aside from Mrs. Potts herself (Angela Lansbury), there could be no better actress to play the motherly tea pot. Susan Hofflander’s maternal characterization of Mrs. Potts was loving yet stern, wise yet a bit slow and the perfect opposition to the tightly-wound Cogsworth and playboy-ish Lumiere. Her version of “Beauty and the Beast” was simple, elegant and left the audience wowed. Perhaps a favorite scene in the show was when the enchanted objects become real again and Chip runs into Mrs. Potts arms. She was warm, sweet and sincere.”
