Oh no, we're getting all intellectual again!!!

Playing at the National next Summer.

My first Phaedra was Glanda Jackson (at the Alwych, I think). Stunning performance. I don't doubt Mirren is up to the task!

re: Don't miss Mirren's Phaedra!

Two month season in 1985.
This must have been one of Ms Jacksons last ever theatrical appearances?
She did 'Rose' at The Duke Of Yorks and 'Summit Conference' at the Lyric, both in 1982, but nothing after 1985s 'Phaedra' as far as i can find.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Ms Mirren will be phenomenal weather she's on coke or marijana!
