Glenn Hughes Penthouse Theatre

In an era that believes beauty is in the eye of the beholder, how can one possibly cast any individual performer as the most beautiful woman in the world? This talk explores how harnessing the glamour of stardom is the most persuasive means of capturing Helen of Troy’s mythical celebrity on screen.

Our own Ruby Blondell will be delivering this lecture as part of the Performing Arts Lecture Series.  For information on this lecture and to obtain tickets ($10, free for UW students), and on the series in general, please click here.
