Photo Flash: First Look at Mark Rylance, Stephen Fry, Paul Chahidi and More in TWELFTH NIGHT and RICHARD III

The critically heralded all-male Shakespeare's Globe repertory productions of Twelfth Nightand Richard III will come to Broadway this fall. The productions, which delighted audiences and broke all box office records in London's West End earlier this year, will open Sunday, November 10 at the Belasco Theatre (111 West 44th Street), with previews beginning October 15. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the stars onstage below!

Twelfth Night and Richard III, which are directed by Tim Carroll, designed by Jenny Tiramaniand with music by Claire van Kampen, will play a limited engagement for 16 weeks. For a schedule of performances and more information, visit www.ShakespeareBroadway.com.

Much loved playwright, screenwriter, actor, writer, poet, journalist, comedian, television personality and National Treasure Stephen Fry makes his Broadway acting debut as Malvolio in Twelfth Night. Tony Award-nominee and Drama Desk Award-winner Samuel Barnett (The History Boys) appears as Viola in Twelfth Night and Queen Elizabeth in Richard III.

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.
