Highlights From Twelfth Night Starring Mark Rylance
Tony winner Mark Rylance stars in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night as the love-struck noblewoman Olivia. The play (presented in repertory with Richard III) features an all-male company playing both male and female roles, as was the custom in the Bard's day. Other traditional details include music performed live on Elizabethan-era instruments in a gallery above the Balasco Theatre's stage and stage lighting supplied almost exclusively by some 100 candles. Performances begin Oct. 15. See the productions' full cast at playbillvault.com.
