Ahhh… we left coasters can only sigh with envy:

From the NY Times:

Shakespeare enthusiasts, get thee to the Armory: the Royal Shakespeare Company will hold court in Manhattan in the summer of 2011 for an unprecedented six-week, five-play residency. The troupe will occupy a newly constructed theater inside the Park Avenue Armory as part of the Lincoln Center Festival, officials from the three organizations announced on Monday.

One of the most famous classical theater companies in the world, the Royal Shakespeare Company will bring 44 actors, 23 musicians and about 30 other artists to New York from its Stratford-upon-Avon home for 45 performances of Shakespearian works in repertory from July 6 to Aug. 14, 2011. The five plays will be chosen from the company’s current lineup: “Antony and Cleopatra,” “As You Like It,” “Julius Caesar,” “King Lear,” “Romeo and Juliet” and “The Winter’s Tale.”
