DLA Piper is reporting that it acted as the official legal partner of a project that brings a Russian production of Peter Morgan's celebrated play The Audience to the stage.

According to DLA, "the play focuses on the private weekly meetings held between Queen Elizabeth II and the succession of prime ministers who have served during her long reign. The Russian version of this originally British production is directed by Gleb Panfilov and is staged at Moscow's Theatre of Nations. Inna Churikova, one of Russia's most revered cinema and theatre actresses, features as the British Queen – a role which was originally portrayed by Dame Helen Mirren in London's West End."

DLA Piper's Moscow and St. Petersburg teams provided pro bono support in connection with the acquisition of the rights to the play from the playwright and producers. The firm also assisted in negotiating the production rights with the Moscow venue and advised on commercial, intellectual property, and tax issues of the production. 

The firm's team was led by Constantine Lusignan-Rizhinashvili, CIS Managing Partner, and included Tax Partner Elena Mikhailovskaia, IPT Counsel Michael Malloy, and Corporate Senior Associate Angelika Yakhneva.
