The Audience - Gielgud Theatre

From Peter Morgan (The Queen; Frost/Nixon), this fascinating new play pitches Dame Helen Mirren (above) as HRH once more (she won an Oscar for her 2006 film portrayal).

The Queen has always held weekly meetings with the day’s prime minister – she’s presided over 12 now – but the content of them has forever been kept secret. Morgan imagines what’s been said behind those mysterious closed doors. 

£25+, Until Jun 15, Mon-Sat, 7.30pm;
Wed/Sat, 2.30pm W1D 6AR

The Colour Purple The Musical - Menier Chocolate Factory

Tony Award-winning director John Doyle leads this new musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s 1987 epistolary novel, which made her the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

It tells the story of Celie and her family, and their life in the US south of the Thirties.

Walker’s tale is a modern classic that’s been translated into more than two dozen languages, adapted for the screen by Steven Spielberg and has now been adapted into this poignant, landmark musical. 

£tbc, Jul 5-Sep 14, Tue-Sat, 8pm; 
Sat/Sun, 3.30pm SE1 1RU

Once The Musical - Phoenix Theatre

The charming Celtic musical drama about a Dublin busker and a Czech girl was the low-budget movie hit of 2007 – Steven Spielberg said it was one of his faves of the year and Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová’s Falling Slowly won the best original song Oscar.

Its Broadway reinvention won eight Tony Awards, so we can’t wait for it to land here.

£25+, Until Nov 30, Mon-Sat, 7.30pm;
