Helen Mirrens performances set for show on screen and stage simultaneouslyJanuary 15th, 2009 - 6:53 pm ICT by ANI
London, January 15 (ANI): Dame Helen Mirren will appear on the movie screen and on stage simultaneously, when the National Theatre launches live performances into UK theatres later this year.
The veteran actress is all set to lead in Phedre, a French classical tragedy that will be the first production to go live on what is to be known as ”NT Live”.
Nicholas Hytner, artistic director of the National Theatre, confessed to having shortlisted the Queen star for her public appeal.
“The reason I said Phedre (would be the first production to go live) is that Helen said ”Yes” and I dare anybody to say no,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
Mirren has one Academy Award, four SAG Awards, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes and four Emmy Awards to her credit. (ANI)
