NEW YORK (AP) — A special audience will get to see Helen Mirren onstage in London next month in the play "The Audience" — some retired show business veterans in a New Jersey nursing home.

The live cinema event company BY Experience said Friday it has donated the high-tech digital projector equipment needed to show a live performance of Peter Morgan's play with residents of the The Lillian Booth Actors Home in New Jersey.

The play will be broadcast live from London's Gielgud Theatre using multiple cameras on June 13 across the world. Some movie theaters will show it live while others will show it at different times throughout the summer. The Actors Home will get a copy of it June 14.
