“The audience- first class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to see the audience at the Gielgud theatre last night.

Helen Mirrens performance as the queen was absolutely first class. I thoroughly every part of the show. Other outstanding performances from several of the actors playing past and current prime ministers.

I would definately recommend this show. It captures the imagination, holds it and then expands it further. The humour was a particular high point...

Well done

“The Audience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

"The Audience" is a very clever, funny and beautifully written play. Helen Mirren taking the part of the Queen at the weekly audiences with her Prime Ministers is brilliant. A definite "must see" if are in London.

“"The Audience" - book now !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

What an incredible experience - though obviously fictional, the details and topics bring memories flooding back, an amazing insight into what might, and probably did, take place between the Queen and her PMs. Mirren is incredible. Book now to avoid disappointment.

“amazing production of the audience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

before I went I wasn't sure it was for me,however I soon changed my mind the production was fantastic and so funny.i wasn't expecting so much humour in a play of which the substance I though would be so serious.helen Mirren was excellent as were the prime ministers,and the girl who played the young queen was superb.if you get a chance go and see it before the season ends.we sat in row n of the stalls with a great view .
