Shakespeare should be performed as it was in Elizabethan times — with an all-male cast.
Twelfth Night and Richard III
Belasco Theatre
Through Feb. 2

Shakespeare expert and master thespian Mark Rylance will star on Broadway in two celebrated productions from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Rylance, who served as artistic director of the Globe before hitting Broadway with Tony Award-winning roles in shows like Boeing-Boeing and Jerusalem, breathes new life into the centuries-old verse. Both shows, playing in repertory, will be performed by an all-male cast in period costumes on a reconstructed Elizabethan stage — just as they were in Shakespeare's time.
