Cheap The Audience tickets at the Apollo Theatre
Kristin Scott Thomas will play the Queen in a new version of Peter Morgan’s The Audience. Stephen Daldry’s production will preview at the Apollo Theatre from 21 April 2015 and is booking to 25 July 2015.
For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said, not even to their spouses. The Audience imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister uses these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional - sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive. In turn, the Queen can't help but reveal her own self as she advises, consoles and, on occasion, teases. These private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age, from the beginning of Elizabeth II's reign to today. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.

Apollo Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Apollo Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Apollo Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station.
Built in 1901, this 775 seat venue has three seating levels and was named after the Greek and Roman god of music and the arts.
The first production at the Apollo Theatre was the Belle of Bohemia, an American comedy by George Lederer which opened on February 21 1901.
In the theatre’s formative years it housed a series of successful Edwardian musical comedies and later a number of plays and revivals. Among the notable works to have played at the theatre are R.C Sherriff’s Journey’s End, Noel Coward’s Private Lives, Driving Miss Daisy, A Mad House in Goa and Defending the Caveman.
The longest-running show ever to grace the Apollo's stage was the quintessential 1960s farce Boeing Boeing, starring Patrick Cargill and David Tomlinson, which played at the Apollo from 1962 before finally transferring to the Duchess Theatre in 1965.
Although the theatre is over 100 years old, very little about the building has changed over that time. When it was refurbished in 1932 a private foyer was installed for those wishing to access the Royal Box.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Apollo Theatre make it the perfect place to see intimate drama, small scale musicals and comical farce.
In the past the venue was synonymous with musicals but in recent years dramatic work has been seen a lot more. Recent successes include The Glass Menagerie, Rain Man, Three Days of Rain, Yes Prime Minister, Jerusalem, The Madness of George III and Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Whatever you decide to see at the Apollo Theatre we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
