With Theresa May taking over as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, now is the ideal time to imagine what her meetings with the Queen must be like. There is no better way to picture them than by watching Helen Mirren portray Elizabeth II through various stages in her life and various prime ministers in this week’s encore screening of “The Audience.” Then beat the summer heat by enjoying some cool music with Yo-Yo Ma, in “The Music of Strangers,” in the cool air conditioning of Lincoln Theater.
