The first Prime Ministers have been appointed for Peter Morgan’s The Audience, starring Oscar winner Helen Mirren as Elizabeth II. Reprising their roles from the acclaimed London production will be Geoffrey Beevers as the Queen’s equerry, with Michael Elwyn as Anthony Eden, Richard McCabe as Harold Wilson and Rufus Wright as David Cameron. Directed by Stephen Daldry, the show will begin previews on February 17, 2015 and play a limited engagement through June 28. Opening night is set for March 8 at Broadway’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. View Comments Related Shows For sixty years Elizabeth II has met each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said, not even to their spouses. The Audience imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister uses these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional—sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive. In turn, the Queen can’t help but reveal her own self as she advises, consoles and, on occasion, teases. These private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age, from the beginning of Elizabeth II’s reign to today. Further casting will be announced later, including five more Prime Ministers. Beevers’ theater credits include A Servant to Two Masters, Henry VIII and The Comedy of Errors. On screen he has appeared in Clash of the Titans, The Curse of the Pink Panther, Victor/Victoria, Inspector Morse, Sherlock Holmes, Poirot and Doctor Who. Elwyn’s stage credits include Rope and Solid Gold Cadillac. TV credits include Foyle’s War, EastEnders and Walk with Destiny. McCabe’s theater credits include A Tender Thing, Bingo and Yes, Prime Minister. On screen appearances include the The Constant Gardener, Notting Hill, Persuasion and Jane Eyre. Wright’s stage credits include The 39 Steps, Frost/Nixon and Mary. Screen credits include The Quantum of Solace, Spy Game, Foyle’s War and Extras.

Data show 2019 may have marked a turning point away from fossil fuels in global energy mix FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:The use of fossil fuels such as coal and oil for generating electricity fell in 2019 in the United States, the European Union and India, at the same time overall power output rose, a turning point for the global energy mix.Those countries and regions are three of the top four largest producers of power from fossil fuels. The declines suggest the end of the fossil fuel era could be on the horizon, said Tomas Kaberger, an energy professor at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, who provided the power generation data to Reuters.Kaberger, who is also the chair of the executive board for Japan’s Renewable Energy Institute and a member of the board at Swedish utility Vattenfall AB, provided data covering more than 70% of the world’s power generation that showed for most of 2019 the amount of power sourced from fossil fuels dropped by 156 terawatt hours (TWh) from the year before. That is equal to the entire power output of Argentina in 2018.The data also indicates that renewable power generation increased at a faster rate than the overall growth in power output for the first time, rising by 297 TWh versus 233 TWh for overall output, Kaberger said.“It is economics driving this as low-cost renewable electricity outcompetes against fossil and nuclear power plants,” said Kaberger. “New renewables are even cheaper than oil per unit of energy electricity generated and even fuels produced from electricity will outcompete against fossil fuels at increasing speed in transport, heating and industry,” he said. “Peak oil demand is close,” Kaberger said.Fossil fuel power generation last declined in 2009 after the global financial crisis, at the same time that overall global electricity output fell, according to BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy. That year was the first time overall power output dropped since BP began publishing the review in 1985.[Aaron Sheldrick]More: Fossil fuels for power at turning point as renewables surged in 2019: data
