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.
