Drummers beware! After hitting the front pages of the nation’s newspapers this week after bellowing obscenities at a gay drumming troupe while dressed as the Queen (they were drowning out the sound of her Olivier-winning turn as Her Madge in ‘The Audience’ at the Gielgud), Helen Mirren will be hosting another audience… as herself. The actress and all round national treasure will be in conversation with National Youth Theatre of Great Britain artistic director Paul Roseby in a special fundraiser for the NYT, talking about her extraordinary career.
For info, see An Audience with Helen Mirren listing. And if you missed the news about the Dame’s drummer-drubbing antics, enjoy the video below.
