Deceased Composer/Pianist makes RSC debut

December 3, 2008 § Leave a comment

Polish Composer and Pianist Andre Tchaikowsky posthumously made his stage debut in The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Hamlet…..well, his skull did anyway.  Although he died from cancer 26 years ago, he donated his organs to science and his skull to RSC specifically for this purpose.  Apparently, he had always wanted to pursue a career as an actor but never quite made it…until now.  He has finally achieved the elusive triple threat…composer, pianist, skull.  For the RSC, this seems to be a smart albeit unorthodox Marketing/PR move to get some free press.
