Thursday, June 30, 2011

7:00 PM

From July 6 through August 14, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will perform five of Shakespeare’s plays in repertory at Park Avenue Armory as part of Lincoln Center Festival.  The RSC’s theater technicians are building a full-scale replica of  the newly transformed Royal Shakespeare Theatrethrust stage auditorium in Stratford-upon-Avon.  Panelists Michael Boyd, Nigel Redden, Rebecca Roberston, and David O. Frantz will come together to speak with WNYC's Leonard Lopate about what it means to transport an entire company and theater across the Atlantic and what this partnership means for the City of New York and the Shakespeare theatrical canon.  Additionally, The Greene Space at WNYC and WQXR will premiere a short video documentary that takes audience behind the scenes of this extraordinary theatrical undertaking.   

Watch Michael Boyd discuss the differences between British and American audiences.
