Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry Will Bring Their Twelfth Night to the Big Screen

Shakespeare's comedy, along with five other Bard plays, will come to American cinemas via Globe on Screen.

One of the highlights of the 2013-14 Broadway season was the Shakespeare's Globe revival of Twelfth Night, which earned its star, Mark Rylance, his third Tony Award for his luminous performance as the love-struck Olivia. If you were bummed that you missed Tim Carroll's delightful production, which also starred Tony nominees Stephen Fry and Paul Chahidi as Malvolio and Maria, you're in luck. As part of the company's Globe on Screen initiative, Twelfth Night will hit American cinemas, filmed in HD under the stars at the Globe in London's South Bank, beginning September 16.

And that's not all Globe on Screen has in store. The company will also present five other titles from their catalog in U.S. movie theaters throughout the fall. Here's a preview of what's in store.
