Review by Tulis McCall 9 March Those of you who like a bit of Royal Fantasy should hurry up and get your tickets to this delicious bit of sweets. The Audience is fantasy indeed, much like Cinderella, but with a bit of grit added to it. Kristin Scott Thomas plays HM The Queen in the return of The Audience to London's West End, to the Apollo Theatre.. As queen for sixty years, Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace - a meeting like no other in British public life – it is private. This is a lavishly illustrated book covering more than 50 of Central London's most famous and historically significant theatres. The fascinating text, combined with stunning images of the theatres featured, helps to honour London's glorious heritage and also offers the reader a remarkable source of reference for years to s: 4.
