Twelfth Night, or What You Will

Broadway Play - Comedy Special — 

Tony Award winner Mark Rylance stars as the as the suddenly love-struck noblewoman Olivia.

While the lovelorn Duke Orsino plots to win the heart of the mourning Olivia (Mark Rylance), an alliance of servants and hangers-on scheme against the high handedness of Olivia’s steward, the pompous Malvolio (Stephen Fry). When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola, who has disguised herself as a young man under the name Cesario, to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet and hilarious chain of events follows.

The play, presented in repertory with Richard III, features an all-male company playing both male and female roles, as the plays were originally staged in Shakespeare’s day.

With 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.
