If you have scheduled a destination corporate meeting in New York City over the next 11 weeks, you might want us to help you check out King Charles III on Broadway.
The play will take your attendees to the not-to-distant future where Charles, Prince of
Wales, finally becomes King of England. He's an idealist, but is surrounded by vultures: a
treacherous family, sneaky politicians, and a disloyal court.
What begins as a satire
on the royal family and the English transforms into a production with the royals behaving much as
their public personae. But the plot deepens into
something Shakespearean in its intensity. In fact, there are many Shakespearean allusions, including an unexpected ghost who is one of the forces against Charles. Then there is the Duchess of Cambridge, played by Lydia Wilson, who has learned her trade at Lady Macbeth's
knee, and children you would swear were King Lear's.
King Charles III is a fantastic, mature play with a limited engagement.
