Broadway Review: THE AUDIENCE

Queen Elizabeth delighted the world this past year when she photo-bombed two young Australian women's hockey players at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. That same spirit is more fully revealed in The Audience, the latest import from London's West End. It stars that sexy senior siren, Dame Helen Mirren as the captive Queen.
