Shelley, out and about in the 1980s
Shelley was very active in show business in the 1980s. After her big break in Charlie's Angels, she immediately delved into new and unknown territory for her, the stage; and she was one of the first actresses to do so. After all the negative criticism (undeserved) she got from her performance on Angels, she began receiving rave reviews for her stage acting. Her work on Vanities, Close Ties and Born Yesterday surprised and wowed many critics. Her stage work paved the way for her critically acclaimed roles in The King of Comedy and The Stepfather. She was last seen on stage in Tamara in the late 1980s.
