Show People 67: Uncompromising positions: Kelly Hunter

WHEN the RSC's critically acclaimed Blue Angel transferred to the West End, it closed within seven weeks. So Kelly Hunter, who gave a startling performance in the Marlene Dietrich role, hit on an idea. A cut-price rip-everything-up production of The Threepenny Opera.

We have to pay for this, we have to pay for that.' Her pale, pointed face brims with disdain. 'You're just talking to a bank.'

I say, 'This is my boyfriend.' This annoys some people.
