Twelfth NightThe Apollo Theatre welcomes back Mark Rylance, whose stunning performance in Jerusalem bowled over audiences in London and New York, for one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. The actor returns to the Bankside theatre to starring in an all-male award-winning production of Twelfth Night by Original Practices following a three-week run earlier in the autumn at The Globe. Rylance plays Olivia in the production, reviving a role he took on ten years ago when the show premiered in 2002. With a celebrated cast in some of Shakespeare's most loved roles you can expect comedy, cruelty and plenty of cross-dressing in this bittersweet production about two teams battling within the house of Olivia. On one hand, the lovesick lord Orsino plots against the heart of indifferent Olivia. On the other hand, a vexed alliance of servants scheme against her steward Malvolio (portrayed deliciously by Stephen Fry). Transporting you right back to 1601 with traditional Shakespearian costume, music and dance, Twelfth Night is part of Shakespeare's Globe's 'The Play's the Thing' season and runs concurrently with Richard III at the same venue.

 

About Apollo Theatre

The first West End theatre of the Edwardian Age, the Apollo has a pleasingly over-the-top design that takes in facades, statuary, and a gypsy coat-of-arms that was intended to bring good luck. Vertigo sufferers may wish to know that the balcony at the Apollo is said to be the highest in London, a design that was intended to improve the acoustic for musicals. More about Apollo Theatre
