Full casting has been announced for the upcoming Broadway run of Peter Morgan’s The Audience, starring Academy Award winner Helen Mirren. The Audience is set to run from February 17-June 28, 2015, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, with an official March 8 opening.

Led by Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II, the full company will include the previously announced Dylan Baker as John Major, Geoffrey Beevers as The Queen’s Equerry, Michael Elwyn as Anthony Eden, Judith Ivey as Margaret Theatcher, Richard McCabe as Harold Wilson, and Rufus Wright as David Cameron, alongside newly named cast members Dakin Matthews (Winston Churchill), Rod McLachlan (Gordon Brown), Anthony Cochrane (Cecil Beaton/Detective/Bishop), Graydon Long (Footman/Beefeater), Jason Loughlin (Footman/Beefeater), Michael Rudko (Ensemble), Henny Russell (Queen's Secretary), Tracy Sallows (Bobo McDonald), Elizabeth Teeter (Young Elizabeth), and Tony Ward (Ensemble).

Two-time Tony Award winner Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) directs The Audience, which comes to Broadway after a sold-out run on London's West End. The drama explores the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from 1952 to 2012 through her weekly meetings with England's prime ministers. Morgan also wrote the screenplay for the 2006 film The Queen, which starred Mirren portraying the same legendary figure. She earned an Academy Award for her performance.
