To celebrate Helen’s Broadway success with “The Audience”, details on all of her stage performances from the 1980s have been added. While this decade will be remembered best for a couple of iconic screen performances, Helen was equally busy in the theatre, playing both Jacobean tragedy (The Duchess of Malfi), provocative new plays (Extremities) as well as Cleopatra, Madame Bovary and Arthur Miller’s Two-Way Mirror. To learn more about each performance, read the career pages. Production stills, rehearsals pictures and programmes have been added to the photo gallery. Helen’s theatre work in the 1990s will be covered next.
