Actors Mark Rylance, Stephen Fry, and Paul Chahidi discuss their roles in Shakespeare’s Globe repertory productions of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and Richard III on Broadway. Mark Rylance stars as the love-struck noblewoman Olivia in Twelfth Night and as the ruthless and conniving title monarch in Richard III. Stephen Fry makes his Broadway acting debut as Malvolio in Twelfth Night. Paul Chahidi plays witty maid Maria in Twelfth Night, and dual roles Hastings and Tyrrell in Richard III. Both plays are at the Belasco Theatre.
Mark Rylance discusses his roles in Jez Butterworth’s new play “Jerusalem.” The show won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Foreign Play and earned six Tony nominations, including a Best Actor nomination for Rylance. Set in the woods of South West England, it centers on Johnny "Rooster" Byron, who is a wanted man—the council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants to be taken to the country fair, his stepfather wants to give him a serious kicking, and a motley crew of friends wants his ample supply of drugs and alcohol.
