Dame Helen Mirren is eager to clear her film schedule so she can return to Broadway, almost a decade after her last stage stint.
The Queen star previously wowed theatre audiences in New York when she starred in A Month in the Country (1995) and Dance of Death in 2001 and 2002; both projects earned her Tony Award nominations for Best Actress.
