BWW TV: On the Red Carpet for TWELFTH NIGHT with Kathleen Marshall, Joan Rivers, Victoria Clark & More!
The critically heralded all-male Shakespeare's Globe productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, which delighted audiences and broke all box office records in London's West End earlier this year, opened last night, Sunday, November 10 at the Belasco Theatre, and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was on the red carpet to chat with the evening's guests, including Kathleen Marshall, Victoria Clark, Joan Rivers, Zachary Quinto, David Hyde Pierce and more. Check out what they had to say below!
Twelfth Night and Richard III are both presented with an extraordinary all-male company playing both male and female roles, as the plays were originally staged in Shakespeare's day. The productions are filled with music, played live by seven musicians on traditional Elizabethan instruments in a gallery above the stage, and are lit almost exclusively by the glow of 100 on-stage candles, adding to the intimate and authentic atmosphere. Entering the theatre, audiences will also witness the pre-show ritual of actors dressing and preparing their make-up on stage, adding to the unique and immersive theatrical experience.
