Direct from a sold-out run in London's West End, the critically-beloved Shakespeare's Globe productions of TWELFTH NIGHT and RICHARD III come to Broadway for a 16-week limited engagement. For tickets and more, visit: http://www.shakespearebroadway.com
Two of The Bard's finest plays are performed in repertory by a remarkable cast featuring two-time Tony Award® winner MARK RYLANCE (Jerusalem, Boeing-Boeing), Golden Globe nominee STEPHEN FRY (Wilde, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) and Tony Award nominee SAMUEL BARNETT (The History Boys). Joining Rylance, Fry and Barnett will be many members of the acclaimed Shakespeare's Globe and West End casts, including LIAM BRENNAN, PAUL CHAHIDI, JOHN PAUL CONNOLLY, PETER HAMILTON DYER, COLIN HURLEY, TERRY MCGINITY, JETHRO SKINNER and ANGUS WRIGHT.
These classics are presented in the custom of how Shakespeare's plays were originally staged, with an extraordinary all-male company playing male and female roles; actors participating in the pre-show ritual of dressing and preparing their make-up on stage, in front of the audience; music played live on traditional instruments; and lighting created almost exclusively by 100 on-stage candles, adding to the intimate and authentic atmosphere. This is delightfully funny, timeless Shakespeare at its absolute finest, and it is not to be missed!
