Oscar and three-time Tony winner MARK RYLANCE returns to the stage in FARINELLI AND THE KING. This captivating new play arrives on Broadway after sold-out runs at Shakespeare’s Globe and on London’s West End.
Written by Claire van Kampen and directed by John Dove, it tells the true story of Philippe V (Rylance), a Spanish monarch on the brink of madness. He finds unexpected solace in the voice of world-renowned castrato Farinelli, sung by countertenor Iestyn Davies.
Like Broadway’s Twelfth Night and Richard III, this contemporary work is presented in the signature style of Shakespeare’s Globe — candlelight, baroque instruments and intimate onstage seating create an enchanting theatergoing experience and “a pleasure that verges on the sublime” (The Guardian).
