Royal Shakespeare Company Will Perform on QM2
Cunard signed a three year deal for the "Bard on the Water".
In a statement, Lee Powell, VP brand and product at Cunard said, "We are delighted to welcome the Royal Shakespeare Company onboard our flagship, Queen Mary 2. To be able to offer our guests access to unique performances by world leaders in both contemporary theatre and Shakespeare’s finest work, is an extraordinary opportunity which I know our guests will fully immerse themselves in."
Royal Shakespeare Company Acting Artistic Director Erica Whyman, added, "The RSC ignites imaginations and expands horizons, and Shakespeare's plays allow us to imagine new and remarkable worlds, so this partnership has a perfect synergy. 'Boundless as the Sea,' which is what Juliet calls her love for Romeo, will be a heart-warming taster of all the ways Shakespeare explores love and romance, and we are also very pleased to be presenting a version of the joyous, quirky and toe-tapping 'Miss Littlewood.'
'This is an exciting new venture for us, and we look forward very much to meeting new audiences on board.'
