KING CHARLES III by Mike Bartlett at London's Almeida, from April 3, 2014

 

KING CHARLES III
by Mike Bartlett
Directed by Rupert Goold

London's Almeida, April 3, 2014—May 31, 2014

The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule?

Mike Bartlett’s controversial new play explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold directs the World Premiere, following his acclaimed production of American Psycho. He is reunited with Mike Bartlett (Chariots of Fire, Cock) after their collaboration on Earthquakes in London.

TONY COINTREAU: READING DRAMA BOOK SHOP 

Thursday, April 17th, 2014 - 6 PM – 7:30 PM

Tony Cointreau: Reading and Book Signing (FREE)
Tony Cointreau will read and sign copies from his new book: "Ethel Merman, Mother Teresa…and Me"

Tony Cointreau – scion of the famed French liqueur family, singer, society figure, and humanitarian. Born and raised in New York City, Tony's life has run the gamut, from glamorous fetes with the biggest names in show business and society to working alongside Mother Teresa comforting the poorest of the poor internationally. Tony was a successful professional singer who left it all behind to devote himself to helping others. He spent 12 years working alongside Mother Teresa with the sick and dying children in Calcutta, to the destitute men with AIDS in Greenwich Village. Encouraged by Cosmopolitan's editor-in-chief Helen Gurley Brown, Tony penned his first memoirs Ethel Merman, Mother Teresa…and Me and is now working on his second book. He continues his efforts to help others by donating his time and efforts to assisting at St. Rita's Immigration and Refugee Center in the Bronx with his husband Jim Russo, his partner of nearly 48 years.

About the Book:
Ethel Merman, Mother Teresa… and Me documents Tony Cointreau's improbable journey from châteaux in France to New York society to the slums of Calcutta.  In his first book, Tony describes his extraordinary adventures, the trials and tribulations, the success and sadness, the abuse and love, which he found throughout his life. He brings readers behind closed doors to meet his family, his "mothers"- Broadway songstress Ethel Merman, Mother Teresa and Lee Lehman (wife of Robert Lehman, head of Lehman Brothers) and the many other legends, from Judy Garland and Mae West to Cary Grant and Pierre Cardin, who played a part in his life.

Reviews and Testimonials:

"I found this memoir to be the most interesting I've read so far. It's well written. Mr. Cointreau is very candid in sharing his feelings and experiences, giving the reader the sense of personally knowing this extraordinary man. This memoir is definitely a page turning, read-in-one-sitting must have for your book collection." —BookLoons

"With insight into a life of rare wealth and fortune, as well as horror and terror, Tony presents a marvelous memoir filled with endearing and courageous moments. Tony Cointreau allows us into his heart as we place him into ours. —The Review Broads

"I was so interested in your life with Ethel Merman…she was a gifted and fascinating woman. And of course Mother Teresa is smiling down. I don't think she would ever be anything but enthusiastic about your life and its far-ranging activity.... Your book is a wonderful story that nobody else can tell. I even think your family background is fun! You are a Cointreau, but then you also had the important entertainer career—I don't think they make many more like you." —HELEN GURLEY BROWN, author & former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine
