Jude has directed over 100 productions, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, Chichester Festival Theatre, the English National Opera, at the Châtelet in Paris and in the West End. Among her many successes as a director, her production of Singin' in the Rain transferred twice to the Royal National Theatre and was awarded the Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical Production in 2001. She directed Sir Ian McKellen in The Seagull and The Tempest, Patrick Stewart in Othello, Dawn French in When We Are Married, and the English National Opera in The Elixir of Love and On the Town. More recently, she directed several works by Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco Peña, as well as a production of Bernstein's Mass at the Royal Festival Hall. In 2006, Jude was named No. 8 in "Theatreland's top 100 players" by The Independent newspaper, and in 2013 she was assessed as one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK by Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4.
