Goold's Romeo and Juliet was also performed in summer 2011, as part of the RSC's New York residency. A 44-member ensemble performed five Shakespeare plays chosen from the 2009 and 2010 repertoire over a six week period at New York's Park Avenue Armory as part of Lincoln Center Festival 2011. Performances took place in the Scarlet & Gray Theatre, a full-scale replica of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, specially built by the RSC's theatre technicians and constructed in Park Avenue Armory's Wade Thompson Drill Hall.
