Helen Mirren will reprise her critically-acclaimed role as Queen Elizabeth II on New York City's Broadway, it has been announced. Mirren won an Oscar for Stephen Frears'2006 movie and performed the same role in Peter Morgan's stage adaptation, The Audience - which is now moving across the Atlantic.

The play won critical acclaim and sold out for its six-month stint in London last year. It is a composition of Morgan's imagined conversations between The Queen and her various advisors and ministers. Morgan had previously penned the hugely successful movie Frost/Nixon, outlining the aftermath of the Watergate Scandal.

Helen Mirren Dusting Off Her Crown To Play ‘The Queen’ Once More

Helen Mirren is set to reprise her career-defining role as ‘The Queen’ for a new stage-play directed by Stephen Daldry. The British star – who scooped an Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in Stephen Frear’s 2006 movie – will team up with Peter Morgan for ‘The Audience’, a production exploring six decades of the monarch’s weekly meetings with British prime ministers.

Her portrayal of The Queen in a meeting with Tony Blair – played by Martin Sheen – was considered one of the more memorable scenes of the award-winning movie and Daldry is set to build on that in the stage-play. Playing the monarch from her twenties to her eighties will be no mean feat, though Mirren holds the necessary credentials to take on such a role. According to the Guardian, she said, “Her voice has changed, and I can use that –she had a terribly posh voice when she was young…But now even the Queen, while she isn't quite dropping the ends of her lines –though her grandsons do! – there's a tiny bit of estuary creeping in there. I can use all that to signify the age range, and we'll come up with other things.” The drama will be staged at the Gielgud Theatre in London from March 2013.

‘The Audience’ is certainly in good hands; playwright Peter Morgan’s last play ‘Frost/Nixon’ gained universal critical acclaim and featured a standout performance from Michael Sheen.
