A Tragedie To Be Celebrated; Richard III on Broadway (Photos)
Shakespeare might have been the one man who changed theatre forever but he hasn’t been around much lately. In New York, that is. This season on Broadway has seen the most Shakespeare presented on the Great White Way in the past 40 years with four different productions currently running. While classics like Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet have returned to the stage, two other works have returned playing rep in what some people are calling a life changing theatrical event. Direct from a sold out run in London, the Shakespeare Globe’s production of Twelth Night and Richard III have come to Broadway. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at one of the two Shakespeare pieces running in rep this season; The Tragedie of King Richard III.
Tony Award winner Mark Rylance stars as Richard, Duke of Gloucester, in this new production as he works to acquire the crown he believes he deserves. Don’t miss Mark Rylance bring to life one of Shakespeare’s best written villains of all time in this hilarious comedy! Due to rep schedule being played, please check for exact dates and times as to when Richard III will be presented. Luner on Theatre will give you a first hand look at Twelfth Night later this week as well so be sure to check back for that!
