No, David Tennant isn’t coming to Lincoln Center. But his Ophelia is, along with the rest of the Royal Shakespeare Company! The RSC will be presenting five plays in repertory at the Park Avenue Armory in a five-week residency July 6-August 14 as a part of this summer’s Lincoln Center Festival.
Mariah Gale, seen in this Hamlet as Ophelia, is tackling another classic ingenue role at the Festival this summer as Juliet. If you’re still craving a Doctor Who connection, her Romeo is Sam Troughton, grandson of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton. And of course we all know from the third-season episode of The Shakespeare Code that the Doctor was hugely influential on Shakespeare’s work.
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (LCPA) serves three primary roles: presenter of superb artistic programming, national leader in arts and education and community relations, and manager of the Lincoln Center campus. As a presenter of some 5,000 programs and events annually, LCPA’s offerings include American Songbook, Great Performers, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Midsummer Night Swing, the Mostly Mozart Festival, White Light Festival, and Live From Lincoln Center. In addition, LCPA led a series of major capital projects on behalf of the resident organizations across the campus, which was completed in October 2012.
Lincoln Center is a 16-acre campus housing 11 prestigious cultural organizations including LCPA. The other 10 are the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
