Our residency at the Park Avenue Armory for the 2011 Lincoln Center Festival was a landmark event in RSC history.
Five Shakespeare productions were performed by a single company of actors in a specially constructed thrust-stage auditorium.
For the first time theatregoers in the US were able to experience our theatre just as they would have seen it in our home in Stratford-upon-Avon.
Designed and built in our workshops in Stratford-upon-Avon, the auditorium was transported across the Atlantic and constructed in 15 days. Watch it happen.
Five Shakespeare productions were performed by a single company of actors.
Speaking before the event, our Artistic Director gives New York audiences a flavour of what they can expect from the Lincoln Center Festival residency.
Before setting off for New York, members of the acting ensemble members talk about what they expect from the experience.
This was a key part of our six-week residency in New York which gave children their first taste of Shakespeare and provided workshops for teachers.
