Most men turn to jelly when faced with Helen Lawson, so what can I expect.

Back to my hard work and winning another Tony. The world will never see a more brilliant Anne of Cleves than the one I am creating. She really was the most important of all of Henry VIII's wives.

"Helen" has only one "l." By the way, I go by "Miss Lawson." Don't try getting a job doing a marquee on Broadway!
