Why See Twelfth Night?
Winner of two 2014 Tony Awards!
In the household of Olivia (Mark Rylance), two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio (Stephen Fry).
When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote. A revival of the Globe's award-winning Twelfth Night of 2002 with an all-male Original Practices production, exploring clothing, music, dance and settings possible in around 1601.
This transfer from Shakespeare's Globe in London was nominated for seven 2014 Tony Awards, and won two. Mark Rylance won his third Tony for his performance as Olivia, adding to his statues for Jerusalem and Boeing-Boeing, while Jenny Tiramani won for her costume design.Twelfth Night is presented as a double bill of Shakespearean classics alongside Richard III, with both plays being presented at the Belasco on a rotating schedule.
