60 Years. 12 Prime Ministers. 1 Queen.
For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting, a meeting known as The Audience. Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren returns to Broadway, and the throne, in a riveting new play by Peter Morgan, the writer of the Academy Award-nominated film, The Queen. Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, An Inspector Calls), The Audience takes theatregoers behind the walls of Buckingham Palace and into the private chambers of Queen Elizabeth II as she meets with each of her Prime Ministers, from when she was a young mother to now as a Great Grandmother. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.
