NEW YORK (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II is on Broadway — and her son will soon join her.

Producers Stuart Thompson and Sonia Friedman said Monday that Mike Bartlett's "King Charles III," which imagines Prince Charles taking the throne with disastrous results, will open on Broadway this fall starring the West End's star Tim Pigott-Smith.

The play, which will star performances at the Music Box Theatres on Oct. 10, on Sunday won the Olivier Award for best new play.

Currently, Helen Mirren is dazzling audiences in "The Audience," which imagines the private weekly meetings between the monarch and Britain's prime ministers.
