Fanboy Meltdown: Picard Meets the Doctor
Patrick Stewart, aka Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek : The Next Generation, is teaming up with David Tennant, aka the 10th Doctor of Doctor Who, in The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Hamlet. Tennant has the lead, Stewart does Claudius, and tickets will go faster than a Beatles reunion after Yoko drops dead.
Hamlet runs July 24 through November 15, 2008. Right after that, Tennant plays Berowne in Love’s Labor’s Lost, which, I believe, is a spin-off from last season’s "The Shakespeare Code" episode of Doctor Who, That show runs October 2 through November 15, 2008. So David will be a bit preoccupied next summer and fall.
If you’re planning on seeing either performance, get your passport ready. As one might assume, The Royal Shakespeare Company is in Britain.
