Born into a well-known Australian show business family, Helen Reddy has
been performing professionally since she was child.
With these successes solidly behind her, Helen returned to her theatrical
roots with starring roles in productions of "Anything Goes,"
"Call Me Madam," and "The Mystery of
Edwin Drood." A huge fan herself of English playwright
and composer Willy Russell, Helen has become the foremost interpreter of
his work, appearing both on Broadway and in the West End of London in the
hit musical "Blood Brothers" and four productions
of Russell's one-woman play "Shirley Valentine."
Although Helen has been winning rave reviews for her theatrical work, she
still continues to appear in concert and with symphony orchestras.
Helen returned to primetime network television in May 2000 when she
guest-starred on the hit CBS series "Diagnosis Murder",
opposite Dick Van Dyke. Helen will release her very first Christmas
collection, "HELEN REDDY: "The Best Christmas Ever"
in July 2000 through an exclusive arrangement with The Home Shopping
Active in community affairs, Helen served for three years as Commissioner of Parks and Recreation for the State of California. Of the many honors she has received, Helen is most proud of the tulip named for her in Holland and she grows the reddish-violet bulbs in her garden in Santa Monica, CA.
