A Helen Mirren flick is always a good excuse to head to the box office—but this time, her performance on the silver screen will be live. Broadcast in HD from London’s Gielgud Theatre, Peter Morgan’s new play, The Audience, stars Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II. The show, part of the National Theatre Live series, breaks into a decades long vow of silence and imagines the happenings during the queen’s private weekly meetings with each of her 12 Prime Ministers—exchanges that range from cherished to stormy.

Thursday 8/22. $10.50-14.50, 7pm. The Paramount Theater, Downtown Mall. 979.1333.
