The AudienceKristin Scott Thomas plays The Queen in an updated version of The Audience, the role which Helen Mirren originally starred in last year. While Scott Thomas takes on the regal role in London, Helen Mirren reprises the role on Broadway at the same time. Peter Morgan's Olivier Award-winning drama - "the first surefire, unstoppable hit of the year" last year (The Guardian) - was inspired by the weekly private audiences between Elizabeth II and her 12 Prime Ministers at Buckingham Palace. Stephen Daldry, the man who brought Billy Elliot to the London stage, brings "giant flair" to the production which avoids a chronological list and instead hops from John Major back to Churchill then forward to Wilson and so on. "Wonderfully funny", said The Telegraph of the original production, "but also genuinely moving".

 

About Apollo Theatre

The first West End theatre of the Edwardian Age, the Apollo has a pleasingly over-the-top design that takes in facades, statuary, and a gypsy coat-of-arms that was intended to bring good luck. Vertigo sufferers may wish to know that the balcony at the Apollo is said to be the highest in London, a design that was intended to improve the acoustic for musicals. More about Apollo Theatre
