The show, according to press notes, "is a thrilling account of the extraordinary relationship between England's Elizabeth I and her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots, Elizabeth's rival to the throne. With its behind the scenes intrigue, scheming and betrayal, the play has the contemporary feel of a modern-day political thriller."
Original London stars Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter will reprise their performances as Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I, respectively.
Phyllida Lloyd directs a cast that also includes Michael Countryman as Sir Amias Paulet; John Benjamin Hickey as Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester; Michael Rudko as Count Aubespine/Melvil; Robert Stanton as William Davison; Maria Tucci as Hanna Kennedy; Chandler Williams as Mortimer; Nicholas Woodeson as William Cecil, Lord Burleigh; and three-time Tony nominee Brian Murray as George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury.
The cast greeted the press March 16. Here is a look at the event, held in the Sardi's building:
