Following its critically acclaimed run at the Almeida Theatre and in the West End, the Olivier Award-winning Best Play, King Charles III, will open on Broadway this fall starring Tim Pigott-Smith reprising his much-raved-about role as King Charles III. Directed by Rupert Goold, Mike Bartlett’s play about Britain’s future king will begin previews October 10, 2015, with opening night set for November 1, 2015 at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street, NYC).
The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? This “bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play,” (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
