Royal SHakespeare Park Avenue Armory

Next summer, for the Royal Shakespeare Company‘s six-week run at the Lincoln Center Festival to be performed on a scale replica of its Courtyard Theater in Stratford-Upon-Avon built inside the Park Avenue Armory, the 44-actor ensemble will perform King Lear, Antony and Cleopatra, As You Like It, Romeo and Juliet and The Winter’s Tale. ArtsBeat reports that each show will run for seven to ten performances, with ticket sales beginning in the fall. RSC headliner Greg Hicks will play Lear and Leontes in Winter’s Tale, while Kathryn Hunter plays Cleopatra and Fool in Lear, which should be incredible. Enron director Rupert Goold helms Romeo and Juliet, but don’t worry, its current run in England is too good to fail.
