Tonight is the Press Night for Richard II at BAM in Brooklyn. David Tennant made his debut on the US stage last week when he premiered his UK award winning role as Richard II for American audiences for the first time ever as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's King And Country event.
David is performing the play just ten times in America making this one of the hottest tickets in town for his US fans. The event sold out almost as soon as tickets went on sale, but you may want to check with the venue for returns.
About the play:
Richard is King. A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs David Tennant in the title role.
