    The fictional reign of Prince Charles (above) is the subject of the award-winning London play “King Charles III."

    London’s “King Charles III,” which won Best New Play at the the West End’s equivalent of the Tonys, will transfer to Broadway this fall.

    Previews begin Oct. 10 at the Music Box Theatre, with an opening night set for Nov. 1.

    Directed again by Rupert Goold, the play, by Mike Bartlett, takes place in a future London, where Queen Elizabeth is dead and Prince Charles has ascended the throne. “King Charles III” sets out to explore the people behind Britain’s most famous family.

    Tim Pigott-Smith, who played Charles III in the London production, will once again take on the crown on Broadway. Additional casting will be announced shortly.

    Tickets for “King Charles III” will go on sale this June. Visit www.KingCharlesIIIBroadway.com for more information.
