Sir Robert Helpmann
Did You Know?
Theatre remains the only thing I understand. It is in the community of the theatre that I have my being. In spite of jealousies and fears, emotional conflicts and human tensions; in spite of the penalty of success and the dread of failure; in spite of tears and feverish gaiety -- this is the only life I know. It is the life I love.
Many people talked about Robert Helpmann with kindness, saying that he respected the crew and children very much. He refused anybody to talk down to a crew member, and was known to get angry with people who did so.
