This production of Twelfth Night, done in rep with Richard III, is unique for this day and age in that all roles, as they were in Shakespeare’s time, are played by men. The production, which was first mounted in London, stars Tony Award winner Mark Rylance as the as the suddenly love-struck noblewoman Olivia. Featuring music, played live by musicians on traditional Elizabethan instruments in a gallery above the stage, the both productions are lit almost entirely by 100 on-stage candles.
Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is filled with love, disguise, trickery, and humor. Outlandish characters, extreme emotions and cunningly clever comedic plots are all a part of one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies. (Note: Twelfth Night will be performed six times per week and Richard III two.)
