Presse : "Marvellous...The Audience is often wonderfully funny, with the Queen proving a deft mistress of the verbal barb, but also genuinely moving...a pitch-perfect production. " Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

"However hard Morgan tries, the evening can't help but seem like a series of revue sketches: a kind of '1956 And All That'. What holds it together is Stephen Daldry's adroit production and Helen Mirren's luminous performance, which, even in a non-linear script, pins down the Queen's steady growth in confidence and authority." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Hugely enjoyable...a right-royal great night out." Paul Taylor for The Independent

"For all the good looks and neatness of Daldry’s staging, it’s hard not to feel that the play could be more dynamic. It resembles a set of sketches, albeit with strong thematic links. Still, they add up to an absorbing whole." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
