Stage to Screen The Audience at The Bing Crosby Theater on June 16, 2019

Captured live from London’s West End in 2013, Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen), plays Queen Elizabeth II in the Tony Award®-winning production of The Audience.

For 60 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 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 Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally 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.

This production has been won several awards: 

  • Olivier Awards 2013
    Best Actress, Helen Mirren
    Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Richard McCabe
  • Evening Standard Awards 2013
    Best Actress, Helen Mirren
  • Tony Awards 2015
    Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play, Helen Mirren
    Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play, Richard McCabe
