Twelfth Night and Richard III, Starring Mark Rylance, Will Include Matthew Schechter and Joseph Timms — and Onstage Seating
Complete casting for these upcoming Broadway repertory productions has been announced.
Kurt Egyiawan, Matt Harrington, Matthew Schechter, Hayden Signoretti, Joseph Timms, Dominic Brewer, and Dylan Clark Marshall will join Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (Jerusalem) and the previously announced cast of Twelfth Night and Richard III. The repertory productions of these two Shakespeare plays will begin performances on October 15 with an opening on November 10 at the Belasco Theatre. Tim Carroll will direct.
These productions originated at Shakespeare's Globe before transferring to London's West End. Twelfth Night will be performed six times per week, with Richard III being performed twice.
The Broadway productions will also offer several rows of onstage seating. Theatergoers who choose onstage seats will have an up-close-and-personal experience, including close proximity to the exciting pre-show ritual of actors getting dressed on stage.
The cast will also include Liam Brennan, Paul Chahidi, John Paul Connolly, Peter Hamilton Dyer, Colin Hurley, Jethro Skinner, Angus Wright, and Terry McGinity.
The design team will feature sets by Jenny Tiramani and music by Rylance's wife, Clare van Kampen. A seven-member band will play live music on traditional Elizabethan instruments.
