Be sure to stay for a recorded Q&A with Helen Mirren and Stephen Daldry immediately following the play.

For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, and right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.

The Audience has received three 2015 Tony Award® nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Helen Mirren), Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role (Richard McCabe) and Best Costume Design (Bob Crowley). The production has also been nominated for 6 Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Outstanding New Broadway Play), 4 Drama League Awards (including Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play) and 2 Drama Desk Awards (including Outstanding Actress in a Play).

The Audience is written by Peter Morgan (The Queen) and directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Academy Award®-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours), and was presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.

"Royally entertaining." - Marilyn Stasio, Variety

"To the surprise of exactly no one, Helen Mirren is absolutely terrific." - Elisabeth Vincelli, New York Post

"The show allows the smashing Ms. Mirren to demonstrate her quick-change virtuosity." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
