Whenever the NT or RSC go to Broadway it is almost always a dead cert sellout (note i did say almost, not always!). To have such a production as this 'Hamlet' go there and also have a name that a large percentage of Americans know thru 'Dr Who' will only help its success. The last time the RSC performed Shakespeare in New York it was with the stunning production of 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' starring Desmond Barritt, Lindsey Duncan and Alex Jennings. This production sold out on a U.S tour before arriving on Broadway in 1996. A year later it was filmed with its original stage cast almost intact and has been on TV around Christmas time almost every year since.
