Latest Review: "We caught a performance in late May at the Gielgud Theatre the night before we flew home from Lon..."

Back in 2006 audiences flocked to cinemas to see Peter Morgan’s take on Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen. The movie would receive a great deal of attention, earning Helen Mirren an Academy Award and BAFTA, and ensured that audiences would remember this role for years to come.

With this in mind audiences are likely to flock to pick up theatre tickets as a stand-out show makes its way back to the West End at the Apollo Theatre. Peter Morgan’s play The Audience is set to land at the venue and it will see Kristen Scott Thomas portray the Queen and give audiences an insight into the secret meetings between the Monarch and the UK’s Prime Ministers during her reign.

As such, The Audience looks at her long reign on the throne and, in particular, these secret meetings that are always shrouded in mystery. The public is never informed as to their content and even spouses are supposedly kept in the dark, so Peter Morgan has been forced to imagine what must have taken place from scratch. So expect appearances from actors playing many well known PMs, from Winston Churchill through to the modern leader David Cameron.

The production returns following its previous run at the Gielgud Theatre in 2013, which saw Helen Mirren reprise her role as Elizabeth II. This time the show is updated to include more topical elements and adds more characters to the mix.

Kristen Scott Thomas is a well known actress who has earned widespread acclaim for his stage and film work over the years. Her best known roles have been the likes of Four Weddings And A Funeral, Mission: Impossible and The English Patient, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award. She has also starred in recent work like Only God Forgives, French-language films like Tell No One and numerous stage shows. Her most recent work has been the title role in Electra at the Old Vic Theatre and prior to that she appeared in The Seagull at the Royal Court Theatre (winning a Laurence Olivier Award) and Old Times at the Comedy Theatre (now the Harold Pinter Theatre).

So London theatre audiences will have another chance to see The Audience when it runs at the West End’s Apollo Theatre from Saturday 2nd May 2015 (previews from Tuesday 21st April 2015).
