Helen Mirren Hosts Stuttering Association Gala After Explaining Her Stance on Feminism

Helen Mirren brought a touch of gold to the 2017 Stuttering Association for the Young (SAY) Gala.

The 71-year-old actress hosted the event alongside fellow actress Kelli O’Hara (right) at NYU Skirball Center on Monday (May 22) in New York City.

Also in attendance was Krysta Rodriguez (left). The gala was held to honor film director Jeffrey Blitz and football coach Joe Moglia.

SAY is a national non-profit organization, “which through summer camp, speech therapy, and creative expression empowers, educates, and supports young people who stutter and the world that surrounds them.”

Helen has also recently voiced her support for another powerful issue – feminism.

“I didn’t define myself as a feminist until quite recently, but I had always lived like a feminist and believed in the obvious: that women were as capable and as energetic and as inspiring as men,” she told the crowd during her commencement speech at Tulane University over the weekend. “But to join a movement called feminism seemed too didactic, too political.”

Broadway Stars Turn Gender Roles on 'Dreamgirls' Classic - Watch the Epic Video!

If you have ever wanted to see the gender roles in the musical Dreamgirls flipped, you are in luck thanks to MCC Theatre’s Miscast Gala.

The annual gala allows Broadway performers to sing songs for roles they would never be able to play on stage due to age, gender, and/or race restrictions.

Two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz led an epic ensemble to perform the Dreamgirls songs “It’s All Over” and “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” at this year’s event. He played Effie while Brian d’Arcy James played Deena and Brandon Victor Dixon took on Lorrell.

Stephanie J. Block played Effie’s love interest Curtis, Kelli O’Hara took on Effie’s brother C.C., Jordan Fisher played the new Dream Michelle, and Jenn Colella played Jimmy Early.

Jennifer Holliday, who originated the role of Effie on Broadway, was sitting on stage during the performance and Norbert bowed at her feet after he was finished singing!
