LONDON

“The Audience,” the new West End play by Peter Morgan (“Frost/Nixon”), starring Helen Mirren as Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, is to be broadcast live to cinemas worldwide.

Broadcast from London’s Gielgud theater on June 13, with varying dates internationally and encore screenings throughout the summer, the screening is part of the National Theater’s NT:LIVE program of screenings.

Morgan’s play, produced in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries, and directed by Stephen Daldry (“Billy Elliot”), is in previews ahead of its March 5 opening. The play charts the queen’s relationships with her Prime Ministers throughout her 60-year reign.

Mirren earned an Oscar for her perf as the queen in Stephen Frears’ film “The Queen,” which was also scripted by Morgan.

Mirren also played the title role in “Phaedra,” the first NT:Live broadcast.

Future National Theater broadcasts include Alan Bennett’s new play “People” (March 21) and James Graham’s “This House” (May 16).
