Cut and pasted from the BBC website:

Jerusalem star Mark Rylance is to return to the West End stage in the Shakespeare's Globe productions of Richard III and Twelfth Night.

Rylance, who was the Globe's first artistic director, will play the lead role in Richard III and Olivia in Twelfth Night. Tim Carroll will direct both shows, which will run together for 13 weeks at the Apollo Theatre from 2 November. The productions will open first at the Globe from 14 July.

Rylance was the artistic director of the Globe from its opening in 1995 until 2005. During his tenure he directed and acted in plays every season and became known for exploring Elizabethan theatre practices.

Excellent image! I'm feeling very smug indeed to have been able to get ahead of Stephen Fry and his Twitter followers to snag myself a ticket to see this at the Apollo. :-) And seeing Richard III at the Globe will realise another of my theatrical viewing ambitions. Yep, feeling very pleased about that too!

And well done you!

I don't think I can think of anyone who deserved to see this Twelfth Night more than you! I am REALLY pleased you got a ticket for it.

Yesterday, very late at night, I managed to get cheap tickets on lastminute.com for Chicago and Singin' in the Rain. I am pleased and happy for myself about that about that!

Now I have worked out who MR reminds me of in this costume and make up – Mary Queen of Scots. :-))
