Millar manages all the raging, seducing, rationalising and downright madness with ease, alternatively hard-faced and positively deliquescing with rapture.
Breakfast With Emma - The New Statesman, Gina Allum
The comedy genius of Helen Millar, who plays Smee and many other characters, shines through. Peter Pan-Art Pass, Natalie Roberts
Millar’s gradual metamorphosis from the grotesque and terrifying to someone / something graceful and elegant, not to be feared and maybe even welcomed was measured and wholly convincing.

Helen Millar excels as Lady Macbeth.
Plays To See - Aidan Elliot - 5 stars
Helen Millar is absolutely magnificent. Her Lady Macbeth begins in full control, clearly focused on the task ahead and the reward it will bring – but then you see her slowly dawning horror at what has to be done in order to retain their position, bleeding into definite guilt and even some remorse. A towering performance. My verdict? An intriguing retelling of the Scottish Play as a Victorian ghost story, with ingenious use of the witches & historic surroundings – Helen Millar is a magnificent Lady Macbeth. PLEASE MIND THE BLOG- 4 stars
There’s a fire and a fury to this version kindled by the dour magnetism of Harry Anton in an outstanding performance of the title role, but also in his charged sexual chemistry with Helen Millar’s Lady Macbeth, something you never got from years of dry interpretations at Stratford. As a more ambitious and avaricious power behind the throne, she’s like Evita steering Juan Peron. The Londonist- Johnny Fox 4 stars
But this is Lady Macbeth’s play, and Helen Millar excels as Macbeth’s manipulative wife, constantly engaged even when the action is trained elsewhere. It’s almost impossible to take your eyes off of her. From Page To Stage- Kerry Harrington 4 stars

It is truly difficult to single out an actor in this uniformly superb cast, but we can mention Helen Millar in the leading role as Olivia. Twelfth Night - Lider, Petra Jelaca
Lady Macbeth, Helen Millar, is magnificent. You feel her torment over the child she lost and her passion for her husband and brings a clarity to her motives for murder. Even when not speaking she acts with intensity, her piercing blue eyes reacting to others words and actions in a spell binding performance. Macbeth - Pocket Sized Theatre
Helen Millar’s performance is beautifully detailed, her eyes and body language frequently communicating what she can’t say aloud. The dynamic between the two shifts back and forth – when they’re alone he’s submissive to her will, but in public she must step back and play the charming hostess, and her frustration at having to rely on her husband to get the job done is palpable. - Theatre Things
Stellar Cast...Helen Millar’s steely Lady Macbeth is a fine match for Anton, and their onstage chemistry is wonderful to watch, especially so as their grip on power loosens. Claire Roderick - My Theatre Mates 4 stars
