New York – Producers Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman and the Almeida Theatre announced today that the box office for the critically acclaimed Olivier Award-winning Best New Play, King Charles III, will officially open tomorrow, September 5 at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street, NYC). King Charles III, the highly anticipated play about Britain’s future king, will begin previews October 10, 2015, with opening night set for Sunday, November 1, 2015.
The full cast and creative team for King Charles III is now complete. Joining Tim Pigott-Smith, reprising his much-raved-about role as King Charles III, will be Anthony Calf as Mr. Stevens, Oliver Chris as William, Richard Goulding as Harry, Nyasha Hatendi as Spencer and other roles, Adam James as Mr. Evans, Margot Leicester as Camilla, Miles Richardson as James Reiss, Tom Robertson as Cootsey and other roles, Sally Scott as Sarah and other roles, Tafline Steen as Jess and Lydia Wilson as Kate.

The Queen is dead. After a lifetime of waiting, Prince Charles ascends the throne with Camilla by his side. As William, Kate and Harry look on, Charles prepares for the future of power that lies before him…but how to rule? Winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Play, King Charles III is the “bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining” (The Independent) drama of political intrigue by Mike Bartlett that comes to Broadway following a sensational West End run. Directed by Rupert Goold and starring the “magnificent” (The Observer) Tim Pigott-Smith in the title role, King Charles III has been deemed “the most insightful and engrossing new history play in decades” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times. This “bold and brilliant” (The Times of London) production explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of Britain’s democracy and the conscience of its most famous family.
Tickets for King Charles III will be available for purchase in person at the Music Box Theatre box office (open Monday – Saturday, 10 am – 8 pm; Beginning November 8: Sunday, 12 – 6 pm), and are currently on sale online at www.telecharge.com, or by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200.
King Charles III had its critically acclaimed world premiere at the Almeida Theatre on April 10, 2014. It premiered in the West End on September 11, 2014.
