Currently starring in King Lear at the Golden Theatre, Glenda Jackson is not only a legendary performer but a politician who spent 23 years as a member of Parliament. Her triumphant return to Broadway in Edward Albee's Three Tall Women last year-after a 30-year absence-earned her the Tony Award, among other prizes. For her performance as Queen Elizabeth I in the BBC series Elizabeth R (1971), she received two Emmy Awards, and was also nominated for The Patricia Neal Story.
