Description Reviewer's Opinion (Australian and New Zealand Theatre Record): "Camp, furious and full of feathers and frills, Tales of Helpman, is a profile of the man which attempts to establish a picture of his character rather than an autobiographical examination of the events of his life."

From Performance Space database:
"Tales of Helpmann was conceived as a dance/drama production to celebrate the life of Sir Robert Helpmann and his legacy to art in this country."
