'The Audience' to be screened at BBA
MANCHESTER >> National Theatre Live, the best of British theatre broadcast to cinemas around the world, comes to Burr and Burton Academy's Riley Center for the Arts on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning will offer the screening of "The Audience." Nominated for three Tony Awards, The Audience sees Helen Mirren reprise her Olivier Award-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth II, following her Academy Award win for the same role in The Queen. For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.
Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors and $9 for students. Tickets may be purchased online at bbatickets.com.
National Theatre Live is sponsored by Aviva and distributed internationally (ex-UK) by New York-based BYExperience.
